D2 Steel and the Bi-Metal Bandsaw Blade

D2 steel is a type of vacuum heat treated steel that is raised to a high temperature and then rapidly cooled by vacuum process. An air-hardened steel composed of a large amount of carbon and chromium, with a high chromium content that gives D2 its mild corrosion resistance properties. Typical applications include forming dies and rolls, punches, knives, shear blades, scrap choppers, and tire shredders. D2, Inconel, and other exotic materials are considered very hard steels and require the use of a saw blade designed exclusively for these materials. Bi-metal blades work best. The 601 Series Haltbar M42 bandsaw blade is widely …
