Product Description

BÖHLER K346 belongs to the group of conventionally produced 8% chromium steels. Its alloy composition features a high content of molybdenum, tungsten and vanadium, which makes BÖHLER K346 more wear resistant and tougher than conventional 12% chromium steels (1.2080, 1.2379). BÖHLER K346 is used in situations where materials like 1.2379 are insufficient in terms of toughness and where high requirements for abrasive wear resistance are set. This combination of high wear resistance and toughness offers advantages for industrial knives subject to high stress in the recycling industry. This grade is also used for stamping and cutting tools.
