An air hardening alloy tool steel with excellent wear and abrasion resistance, AISI D6 steel is a high carbon, 12% chromium alloy cold work tool steel with tungsten. Due to its high carbon, high chromium content, D6 tool steel is able to harden more effectively than D3 steel, has greater dimensional stability, and is highly resistant to tempering as well.

Supply Range of DIN 1.2581 Hot Work Tool Steel

  1. Round Bar Ø (mm):
  • Hot Rolled from Ø12~Ø50;
  • Hot Forged: EAF-Ø50~Ø250; ESR-Ø50~Ø650;
  • 2. Flat Bar (mm):
  • EAF Thickness from 20~200, width from 80~610;

We could supply ASTM D6 tool steel and equivalent grade in DIN 1.2436 steel/X210CrW12 steel, JIS SKD2 steel in good quality as per standard requirements.


Steel D6 is particularly useful for applications such as blanking tools, stamping tools, embossing tools, scraping tools, trimming tools, woodworking tools, drawing tools, press tools, stone moulds, sintered tools, machine knives, hammer cores, ring rollers, thread rolling dies and plastic moulds. It can be used to cut hard sheet material such as ceramic brick and tile wear material up to a thickness of 2mm along with more conventional paper and plastic blades. Additionally it can be employed for cutting die punching pressing silicon steel sheet and more.


Very wear resistance, high compressive strength, very low hardenability, high tempering resistance.
