It offers excellent abrasion resistance and compressive strength combined with mild corrosion resistance and moderate toughness. It is very deep hardening and shows good dimensional stability after proper treatment. D2 can be supplied in many finishes including, hot rolled, part pre machined and fine machined condition.
