9Cr18 steel is high carbon high chromium martensitic stainless steel. After quenching, it has high hardness, high wear resistance and corrosion resistance.
The steel is suitable for manufacturing plastic molds. It can withstand high wear resistance, high load, and corrosive media. The steel belongs to the Leyburst steel body. It is easy to form uneven carbide segregation and affect the service life of the mold. So, the hot processing process must be strictly controlled during hot processing.
It is similar to those of Cr17. 9Cr18 new name is 95Cr18. that is to say, 95Cr18 =9Cr18.
