New technical article: Uddeholm Dievar – pushing performance to new limits

It is human nature to stick to what we know and be couscous; as the saying goes: "if it’s not broken, why fix it?". But if we never pushed the boundaries of what we could achieve we would never make progress. At Uddeholm we believe in this process of constant improvement and development which is how we are now able to manufacture tool steel which has been pushed to new levels of toughness and performance never seen before. We present Uddeholm Dievar 25 Joules.

This new tool steel development from Uddeholm gives you the perfect balance between toughness and heat checking solutions for HPDC (high-pressure die casting) and other applications. The new Uddeholm Dievar gives you, the customer:

  • More quality cast parts for all common size ranges
  • Lower cost production
  • Longer tool life
  • Excellent heat checking resistance
  • Best toughness in its class in NADCA (North American Die Casting Association)
  • Developed for large dies and inserts

The new Uddeholm Dievar is now available to purchase from all Uddeholm sales companies and has been approved and set into the new NADCA #207-2018 document. This new steel has been developed for the automotive industry with the new e-mobility and structural parts as the focus.

Uddeholm is the world’s leading manufacturer of tool steel for industrial tools. And that is no accident. We put our hearts into every piece of steel and every step of the process, from raw material to finished product. Technology is important, just as know-how and product development. But equally vital are desire and courage, power and a forward-looking spirit.

It’s about the passion within us – the love of steel!
