SSI-Sintered Specialties’ PM tool components are pressed to near net shape and hot-temperature sintered to near "FD". The near net shape minimizes the amount of machining required, while the uniform carbide distribution provides excellent grindability in high density steel.

TYPE GRADE DESCRIPTION
M2 SSI-FD-M2 High speed used for severe wear resistant components such as cam rings, pump liners, seals, and plungers.
T15 SSI-FD-T15 High speed steel with excellent hot hardness, finding applications in spade drill bits, cutting inserts, and wear plates.
D2 SSI-FD-D2 Cold-work tool steel with good wear resistance below 400 °F (200 °C) appropriate for use in wear resistant components such as knife blades, slitters, choppers, dies and punches.
