Temper at F for a hardness of Rockwell C 60 to Cold working may be accomplished with the alloy in the annealed condition. Preheat at F before heating for hardening.

astn It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Consult the alloy supplier for information on the advisability of welding. Then heat rapidly from F to F and hold asgm 3 to 5 minutes followed by quenching in oil, air or salt bath.


Formed by machining or forging and then machining. Not applicable to this alloy. See “Heat Treatment” and “Tempering”. The maximum Brinell hardness and minimum Rockwell C hardness for the tool steels are given. Do Not forge below F. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Hardens by heat treatment and quenching. It may be shaped by grinding but is relatively poor in regard to capability of being ground.

See “Forging” and consult the supplier for information on working at lower temperatures. Modulus of Elasticity Tension. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

ASTM A600 – 92A(2016)

The M2 alloy has somewhat better wear resistance than M1. Selection will depend upon design, service conditions, and mechanical properties. Forge at F down to F.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. M2 is classified as a “medium” machinability tool steel in the annealed condition. Anneal at F and slow furnace cool at 40 F per hour, or less. Unless otherwise specified, material shall be made by an electric melting process. Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, asgm delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Bar Products by 28 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Flat Rolled Products, Wire Products, and Shapes.


A chemical analysis of each heat of steel shall be made to determine the percentage of the elements specified including carbon, manganese, aastm, sulfur, silicon, chromium, vanadium, tungsten, molybdenum, and cobalt and these values shall conform to the requirements as to the prescribed chemical composition.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

ASTM A T5 High Speed Tool Steel Round Bar

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Two intermediate high speed tool steels designated as M50 and M52 are also covered. Primarily used for cutting tools.
