CPM 9V Hot Work Steel
Similar to CPM 10V cold work tool steel, CPM 9V has a higher heat resistance and improved toughness due to its lower carbon and vanadium levels. These characteristics make CPM 9V better suited to handle problematic cutting applications where higher carbon and vanadium tool steels have insufficient toughness and heat resistance, and where other hot work steels lack sufficient wear resistance.
The CPM (Crucible Particle Metallurgy) process creates a high quality, homogeneous steel that is very stable, easy to grind, and much tougher than conventional tool steels.
