H13 Hot Work Tool Steel is a chromium, molybdenum, vanadium hot work tool steel which is characterized by high harden-ability and excellent toughness. The molybdenum and vanadium act as strengthening agents. The chromium content assists H-13 to resist softening when used at high temperatures. H-13 offers an excellent combination of shock and abrasion resistance, and possesses good red hardness. It is capable of withstanding rapid cooling and resists premature heat checking. H-13 has good machine-ability, good weld-ability, good ductility, and can be formed by conventional means.

A.I.S.I. H-13 conforms to ASTM A681, AMS 6408, SAE J437, J438, J467
Typical applications for are forging dies, forging die inserts, hot gripper dies, hot nut tools, hot header dies, brass forging and pressing dies, aluminum base dies, aluminum casting and extrusion dies, zinc die casting dies, extrusion mandrels, plastic molds, cores, die holder blocks, hot press dies, hot work punches, etc.
Heating for forging must be done slowly and uniformly. Soak through at 1900°-2000°F and reheat as often as necessary, stopping work when the temperature drops below 1650°F. After forging, cool slowly in lime, mica, dry ashes or furnace. H-13 should always be annealed after forging.
