Toolox 40

Toolox 40 is supplied in a rolled or tempered version and has a high impact strength and very low self-tensioning in order to achieve good dimensional stability after machining. The life of tools / components can be extended by using suitable methods for surface treatment. Toolox 40 is suitable for injection molding applications, rubber molding and machine components.


  • 360 to 420 HBW
  • The hardness of Toolox 40 is measured in accordance with EN ISO 6506-1 on a milled surface 0.5 to 2 mm below the sheet surface.


  • Toolox 40 is available in thicknesses between 6 and 130 mm. Other dimensions are available upon request.


  • Tolerances according to SSAB’s thickness guarantee AccuRollTech - AccuRollTech meets the requirements of EN 10 029 Class C but offers narrower tolerances.
  • Flatness tolerances accord with SSAB’s flatness tolerances, which are more restrictive than EN 10 029 Class N (steel type L).

Surface properties

  • Surface properties of Toolox 40 accord with to EN 10 163-2 Class B, Subclass 3.

Heat treatment

  • Quenched and tempered at a minimum temperature of 590oC. On delivery from SSAB the plates meet the following specifications: - free from mill scale - not repair welded
  • Toolox 40 is not designed for further heat treatment. If Toolox 40 is heated above 590oC after delivery from SSAB, no guarantees for the properties of the steel are given.
  • Nitriding or surface coating may be carried out if the temperature is below 590oC.
