Cr5Mo1V is an air quenched die steel with deep air quenching and hardening properties, which is very beneficial for complex dies requiring to maintain their shape after quenching and tempering. The deformation caused by air quenching is only about 1 / 4 of that of manganese containing oil quenched tool steel. The wear resistance is between manganese type and high carbon and high chromium type tool steel. Its toughness is better than any other type. It is especially suitable for tools requiring good wear resistance and special toughness. It is widely used in blanking dies and forming dies, rolls, punches, calendering dies and wire rolling dies, It is also used for some types of scissors
