Carpenter® steel's Micro-Melt® Maxamet® alloy is a high alloy content super hard powder high speed steel with properties intermediate between conventional high speed steels and cemented carbide. Consider for use in applications where conventional tool steels do not hold up. The alloying additions provide excellent wear resistance due to a high carbide volume, and good toughness at high hardness levels.

Maxamet consists of:

Carbon Chromium Cobalt Copper Manganese Molybdenium Nickel Niobium Nitrogen Phosphorus Silicon Sulfur Tungsten Vanadium
