Virat Special Steels DIN 2378

DIN 1.2738 is specially used for Plastic injection die moulds. The characteristics of a material are right sharpening, photo-etching properties with high purity and good homogeneity. DIN 2738 is upgraded version of plastic mold steel 0f 2311, which normally supply in Pre hardened condition. Hardness in as supplied condition 280-320 HB with having uniform hardness. The additional nickel content of 1 % increases through hardening. It has good machinability, suitable for Texturing, fine polishability, adequate corrosion resistance, vacuum-degassed steel.

DIN 2738 High Hard ( HXM 24 )

The modified version of 2738 is with High Hardness 360-400 BHN and increase alloy elements to get extra life and outstanding polishing.
