Steel Grades used for Industrial Blades

MASTERCUT industrial blades are made of various Steel Grades to satisfy each customer application. Please choose an appropriate for your cutting needs blade steel from the list below:

Standard Steel blades are well known for their hardness, ability to resist deformations, and long-term service. The blades finer edge is perfect for precise cutting and slitting when the blades are regularly sharpened. Therefore, this grade of steel is usually used for infrequent cutting of paper or jobs with less quality issues.

Alloy Tool Steel contains additional alloying elements compare to Standard Steel. Therefore, blades made out of Alloy Tool Steel offer improved hardness, toughness, and wear resistance.

High Carbon High Chrome blades provide excellent hardness and wear resistance. Another well known property of High Carbon High Chromium blades is a corrosion resistance. These blades stay sharp longer and hold an edge better than blades made out of Standard Steel. However, blades made out of HCHC steel are more difficult to sharpen.

High Speed Steel blades are able to withstand continuous use and heat created from the friction of fast moving cutting tools. Therefore these blades are widely used for cutting various materials in different applications. Our HSS blades contain 6% or 18% tungsten at RC 62-63 which is significantly increases blade life compare with a standard quality.

Tungsten Carbide Tipped blades are known for being sharp and durable. Tungsten Carbide blades can sustain significant loads. They are highly wear-resistant, and can be used in a variety of industrial applications where extremely sharp cutting instruments are required.

Hardened and Tempered Stainless Steel types 420/440 B blades have a high carbon content that increase hardness, improve strength and wear resistance. Because of the steel hardening process these blades are resistance to any food or water with mild alkalosis or acids. As a result these blades are the best choice for applications within the Packaging Industry.

Sintered Alloy Steel is prepared by powder technology to get materials with high level of purity and controlled uniform porosity. These qualities enable blades made out of Sintered Alloys to have high strength and serve long term service under alternating loads application.

Nickel Chrome Superalloys cutting blades are able to withstand rust (oxidation) and to take an impact without cracking. These qualities are vital when working with corrosive materials with harder embedded impurities. Being made of pre-hardened tool steels Toolox 33 or Toolox 44 Nickel Chrome Superalloys blades are highly resistant to work deformation.

Chipper Steel demonstrates very good toughness and wear resistance properties. This air hardened 8% Chrome steel is specially used for manufacturing chipper and flaker knives that are used for a crushing and cutting to flakes timber products.
