Cold work die steel is mostly used in room temperature with large plastic deformation under serious working stress and harsh working conditions.
In combination, the performance of this cold work tool steel grades generally requires high die hardness and wear resistance, sufficient strength and appropriate toughness.

FAQ of Cold Work Die Steel
What is cold work die steel?
Cold work die steel refers to die tool steel used to deform or shape metal in a cold state.
What's the common problems and solutions of cold work die steel?
Cold work die steel is easy to crack and dent. The solution is: to select good steel, to conduct standardized heat treatment to improve the impact toughness of steel.
Can cold work die steel be used as hot work die steel? why?
No, cold work die steel of mold steel material focuses on hardness and wear resistance, so it has high carbon content, and the alloying elements are mainly used to increase the steel’s hardenability and improve the wear resistance.
Hot work die steel asks more for red hardness, thermal conductivity and wear resistance, and less for hardness. Therefore, it has low carbon content, and the alloying elements are mainly used to increase the steel's hardenability, improve wear resistance and red hardness.
What is DC53 steel?
DC53 steel is a new general purpose cold work die steel whose strength and toughness approach those of high-speed steels. It’s mentioned in Japanese Standard JIS G4404.
