When To Print With H13 Tool Steel

H13 works excellently in high temperature and can withstand drastic cooling. This, coupled with abrasion resistance and machinability makes it ideal for molds and wear resistant pieces.

Working with H13 Tool Steel

Markforged H13 Tool Steel gets harder, stronger, and tougher when heat treated. We recommend air quenching at 1010C (1850F) and double tempering at 600C (1110F). For improved hardness at the expense of part toughness, you can double temper at a lower temperature (500-550C, 930–1022F).
