Application / Models
A-6 is a medium alloy steel used in die and mould applications.It has a very good balance of toughness, strength and wear resistance. Quite often it is chosen because of its good machinability and non-deforming characteristics in heat treatment.
A-6 is readily machined in the annealed conditon. Its machinability is about 65% of a 1% carbon tool steel. It also has a high grindability rating.
A-6 may be annealed in either a controlled atmosphere furnace or wrapped in stainless steel foil.Heat to 1350u00b0 to 1380u00b0F and hold approximately one hour for each inch of thickness. Cool very slowly at a rate of 20u00b0 per hour to approximately 1000u00b0F. Annealed hardness range is normally 212 to 235 Brinell.
