Cold Work Tool Steel
Cold working tool steels are high carbon steels that contain alloy additions of tungsten, manganese, chromium and molybdenum, which increase the hardenability of the steels.
The high carbon content produces adequate wear resistance for short run applications.

Machinery steels are carbon steels suitable for the working parts of the machine in general mechanical engineering industry. Different grades of steel can be applied to components with different level of stress and pressure ranging from moderate to high.All our machinery steel materials are hardened and tempered for oil quenching and water quenching. It is also suitable for flame hardening and induction hardening.

Hot Work Tool Steel
Hot working tool steels are used in the hot-forming of work-pieces made of iron and non-ferrous metals as well as alloy derivatives at high temperatures. They are utilised in processes such as pressure die casting, continuous casting, extrusion and drop forging as well as in tube and glass manufacturing.

Plastic Mould Steel
Pre-hardened plastic mould steels are widely used for manufacturing mould for plastic because of their four main properties and characteristics:
- Wear Resistance; Corrosion Resistance; Mirror Finishability; Surface Workability
These steels are quenched and tempered before being manufactured into mould for plastic, therefore the deformation and cracking of mould resulted from heat treatment can be avoided.

Abrasion-Resistant (AR) Steel Plate
Abrasion-Resistant (AR) steel plates have been developed specifically for long service life in harsh conditions. Designers and plant operators choose Abrasion-Resistant (AR) steel plates when striving to extend service life of critical components, and reduce the weight of each unit put into service. The benefits of employing Abrasion-Resistant (AR) steel plates in applications involving impact and/or sliding contact with abrasive material are immense.
- mining/quarrying; conveyors; material handling and construction; earthmoving
Please find the grades of Abrasion-Resistant (AR) steel plates we supply: AR 400; AR 500; ABREX 450; ABREX 500…..
High Tensile Steel Plate
High strength high tensile steel plates are steels with low carbon content. This kind of carbon structural steel has very good tensile strength, good toughness, plasticity and processing property, and are widely used in structural assemblies where welding process is involved.

ST52-3 steel is a structural steel that can be readily welded and it has the mechanical properties of 355 N/mm² for yield strength and 490 – 630 N/mm² for tensile strength respectively. It possesses excellent cold forming properties comparing to its low carbon equivalent. ST52-3 is equivalent to S355JR and S355J2. We supply two kinds of high strength high tensile steel, namely ST52-3 and Wel-Ten 780E.
Stainless steels provide an outstanding combination of high strength, good toughness, good corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties at high temperature (up to 600°F).

Cast iron is a ferrous metals used in construction and outdoor ornament. It is hard, brittle, non-malle able (i.e. it cannot be bent, stretched or hammered into shape) and more fusible than steel. Cast ironisvery good in compression.
- Free from sand marks and graphite marks; Good machinability due to its dense and even structure up to the deep centre of the material; Smooth casting surface and good precision.
