High Speed Steels

High-Speed Steel - Known for its high hardness

HSS stands for High-Speed Steel with its properties like high hardness, high heat resistance, and high wear resistance. BK Steel Company is the leading Steel distributor of High-Speed Steel Punjab, India. HSS, also called air-hardening steel, allows it to cool down during quenching. High-speed steel have two primary materials in its part:

  • Metal carbide
  • Steel Substrate

Combining these improves the material in terms of strength and wear resistance like for AISI M2 steel. That’s not all; it has different properties to serve well in terms of:

  • Toughness
  • Helps to absorb shock
  • Prevent chipping

Due to wear resistance, the overall performance improves and can be used for several things because of its higher resistance ability. Our quality products and precise work ethics are possible because of the dedicated efforts of our proud dealers:

  • Gloria
  • Sanyo Special Steel
  • Musco

High-speed steel composition

High-speed steel is made from different materials holding various carbon content values to assist better in terms of processing cutting tools. It’s used best in terms of heavy workload and high working temperature.
