CPM S60V 3ft bars
CPMS60V is a corrosion-resistant, highly wear-resistant tool steel made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. It is essentially 440C martensitic stainless steel enriched with a uniform dispersion of very fine vanadium carbides for exceptionally good wear resistance. CPM S60V offers corrosion resistance equivalent to 440C with substantial improvement in wear resistance over both 440C andD2, and other high chromium tool steels. With characteristics of both stainless steels and tool steels, S60V is ideally suited for corrosion-resistant applications requiring unusually high wear resistance, as well as for high wear applications, requiring corrosion resistance.To the custom knife-maker, CPMS60V offers a corrosion resistant blade stock with exceptional edge-holding characteristics.
