5CrNiMo is a hot work die steel. Except for its hardenability and thermal fatigue resistance are slightly worse, the steel can be roughly seen as an H13 equivalent material.

The 5CrNiMo steel has good toughness, strength and high wear resistance.
The mechanical properties of these hot work die steels are almost the same at room temperature and 500～600℃.
When heated to 500℃, 5CrNiMo steel can still maintain the hardness of HB300.
The 5CrNiMo steel is not sensitive to temper brittleness because of molybdenum content.
After slowly cooling down from 600°C, its impact toughness is only slightly reduced.
This 5CrNiMo steel is suitable for making various types of forging dies that require high strength and wear resistance. When higher toughness is required, electroslag remelted steel can be applied.
