Uddeholm Vanadis 8 SuperClean

A profitable long distance runner

Uddeholm Vanadis 8 SuperClean sets a new standard for Powder Metallurgical Tool Steel. The technological advancements makes this cold work tool steel superior to its predecessors.

The unprecedented combination of extremely high wear and chipping resistance paired with improved machining properties raise production rates and reduce costs.

  • Lower price per produced part
  • Longer tool life
  • Predictable Production
  • Highest wear resistance
  • Very high chipping resistance
  • High compressive strength
  • Good machinability
  • Stamping
  • Blanking
  • Fine Blanking

It is especially useful in high wear applications for example stamping/fineblanking in Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS-materials) where a high wear and chipping resistance is needed in combination with high compressive strength.

Another application is stamping/blanking of high abrasive steels like electrical steel sheet. Although the material is very wear resistant, it is the most easily machined material in its class, and offers a very good dimension stability in heat treated condition.
