LC 200 N
LC 200 N is produced by Zapp Steel and is a derivative of Cronidur 30:
LC 200 N is a high nitrogen alloyed tool steel which exhibits superior corrosion resistance combined with high toughness even at hardness up to 60 HRc. Combining PESR-Process (Pressurized Electric Slag Remelting) with a smart forging technology, an amazing increase in cleanliness and structure, which means a very fine and homogenious microstructure, can be achieved. Primary advantage is excellent machinability and polishability as well as a high dimensional stability after heat treatment. For this reason LC 200 N is the high end solution for tools facing high static and dynamical load under a high corrosive environment at higher temperatures.
