Properties: CPM 10V is a unique tool steel made by Crucible’s patented Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. It is designed with a tough, air hardening base analysis with added high carbon and vanadium for exceptionally good wear resistance, toughness and strength for cold and warm work tooling applications. The exceptional wear resistance and good toughness of CPM 10V make it an excellent candidate to replace carbide and other highly wear resistant materials in cold work tooling applications, particularly where tool toughness is a problem or where cost effectiveness can be demonstrated. .

Application: Knives for Slitting, Shearing, Trimming, Granulator / Pelletizer Blades, Woodworking Tools, Nozzles, Screw Tips, Barrel Liners, Plastic Injection Molding Equipment, Powder Compaction Tooling, Wear Parts, Punches & Dies for Blanking, Piercing, Forming and Cold Extrusion.
