H13 Tool Steel
Tool Steel optimized for high-temperature and high-wear applications.
When should I 3D print H13 Tool Steel?
H13 Tool Steel works excellently in high temperature and can withstand drastic cooling. This, coupled with abrasion resistance and machinability, makes it ideal for high-temperature tooling and wear-resistance pieces.

Working with H13 Tool Steel
Markforged H13 Tool Steel gets harder, stronger, and tougher when heat treated. We recommend air quenching at 1010C (1850F) and double tempering at 600C (1110F). For improved hardness at the expense of part toughness, you can double temper at a lower temperature (500-550C, 930–1022F).
Compatible with our Metal X system.
