ASTM P20+S Steel Properties

Die Steel P20S Physical Properties

  • Density: The density of P20+S steel is about 7.85 g/cm3, which is similar to ordinary carbon steel.
  • Melting point: The melting point of P20S steel is about 1420-1470 degrees Celsius, which makes it maintain good stability in high temperature environments.
  • Thermal expansion coefficient: about 11.5 x 10^-6/degree Celsius, 20-100℃. It means that the compatibility of AISI P20+S steel is better.
  • Thermal conductivity: The thermal conductivity of P20+S tool steel is generally high, which helps to dissipate heat quickly and heat evenly.
  • Magnetism: P20+S steel usually has a certain degree of magnetism and can be attracted by a magnetic field.

AISI P20S Steel Mechanical Properties

  • Tensile strength: usually between 1000-1400MPa, indicating that P20S steel can withstand the pressure in tension.
  •  Yield strength: 800-1200MPa, indicating that P20+S steel has good plasticity.
  • Elongation: 10-25%
  • Impact toughness: 5-20J/cm²
  • Poisson’s ratio: 0.27-0.30
  • Unnotched Izod Impact: 28.0 J

Plastic Mold P20+S Tool Steel Process

P20S is a high-alloy chromium plastic mold steel with excellent properties. Its manufacturing process has an important impact on improving its performance. The following are some main processes of P20+S tool steel:

*Steelmaking process: EAF+LF+VD
*Forging: Slowly heat P20+S to 1050°C, start forging, and ensure that the forging temperature is not lower than 930°C
*Annealing: generally heated to 710-740°C, after a period of heat preservation, ensure that the heat is thoroughly heated, and then slowly cooled to room temperature
*Solution treatment: heat to 850°C-880°C to make it into a solid solution, and keep it for a period of time to change its internal structure, and then cool it rapidly
* Quenching and tempering treatment: Quenching and high temperature tempering to transform the structure into martensite
* Tempering: Usually the tempering temperature is generally 580°C-640°C, and then cooled in the air.
* Nitriding: P20+S die steel can be nitrided by gas nitriding, salt bath nitriding and ion nitriding, so as to improve its surface hardness and performance.
*Forming process: hot rolling or forging

Tool and Mold Steel P20S Application

P20+S tool steel is widely used in mold manufacturing, including injection molds, mold brackets, die-casting molds and extrusion molds, etc. P20S is a versatile plastic mold that is suitable for many other fields such as tool making, automotive and machinery.

When you need to purchase P20+S tool steel, you need to know in advance performance, P20+S steel application, P20S mold steel heat treatment process and other information, so as to maximize the application of P20+S. Similarly, Songshun Steel, as a professional P20+S tool steel supplier, has an in-depth understanding and research on P20+S steel, so that we can provide better p20s steel and services.
