H11 Steel Round Bar has best thermal physical phenomenon, high toughness and resistance to hot cracking and due to this these tool steel are used in die-casing, press forging, extrusion processes etc. For hot tooling applications where maximum resistance to cracking is required, H11 is the best recommendation by experts. H11 is a deep-hardening, air-hardening steel that gives minimal size change during heat treatment.
