W1 Steel Bar Stock

 W1 steel is one of the most prevalent water hardening tool steel-grades 

W1 Tool Steel

W1 tool steel is part of the Water-hardening tool steels, commonly known as group W steels.

There are three varieties in this group: W1, W2, and W3. Carbon is the most common alloying ingredient in group W steels.

It also has a small quantity of chromium that can be added to W steels to improve resistance and hardenability. The grain size is maintained by adding vanadium, which improves the toughness of the steel. Group W steels are inexpensive and have limited resistance to softening at high temperatures.

W1 steel is one of the most prevalent water hardening tool steel grades, and it may be hardened quickly by heating and quenching in water. During quenching, however, this alloy does experience some distortion. W1 water-hardening tool steels are described in depth in the accompanying datasheet.
