P6 Steel

Steel name: P6
Diagram No.: 1480
AISI/SAE designation: P6
Chemical composition in weight %: 0.05-0.15% C, 0.35-0.70% Mn, 0.10-0.40% Si, 1.25-1.75% Cr, 3.25-3.75% Ni
Steel group: Tool steels
Applications: Tools, mold steels
Comment: Hardness of type P6 mold steel along end-quench hardenability bar at various case-depth levels corresponding to various carbon contents. Hardness at high carbon contents decreases with increasing carbon content because of increasing amounts of retained austenite.
