Tough inside and hard outside, to assure high wear-resistance – these are precisely the properties that Dillinger's case-hardening steels give your components, such as sophisticated pre-cast concrete moulds, for example. Our quenching and tempering steels convince users with their strength, toughness and hardness – tailor-made for your application, for use, for example, in plastics mould-making.
Case-hardening steels have a carbon content of 0.10 % to 0.20 % and are intended for case hardening. This process generates greater internal toughness and significantly greater hardness on the material's surface, and thus greater resistance to wear.
Quenching and tempering steels have a carbon content of 0.3 % to 0.6 %, and achieve their special properties only thanks to quenching and tempering, a heat treatment consisting of hardening and tempering. This process boosts the steel's mechanical strength, toughness and hardness, each of which can be optimally adjusted by selecting the correct tempering parameters. Alloying-element (chromium, manganese, molybdenum and nickel) contents are precisely calculated to match the specific application. This is of particular importance in the case of greater plate thicknesses, which are required, above all, in moulds for the processing of plastics.
Innovative top-quality steel products, total orientation around our customers' needs and unceasing technological development in close cooperation with our partners form the basis of our success - as they have for more than 333 years.
