Erasteel recommendations

For saws, the material properties of High Speed Steel offer many advantages:


  • a high wear resistance, due to a high hardness and also a high hot hardness
  • an excellent toughness, giving saw blades a good impact resistance, necessary for reliability
  • optimum value for money for the end-users

For all sawing applications, Erasteel recommends ASP® 2042 and ASP® 2051.
