M35 is a high-speed steel suitable for cutting tools such as, broaches, taps, milling, reamers, hobs, shapers cutters, saws etc.  In terms of performance, M35 is an all-round steel to be used in cutting conditions where demands for hot hardness are of importance.  M35 is also suitable for cold work applications, where exacting demands are imposed on wear resistance.  The steel possesses an admirable combination of wear resistance and toughness and in these respects superior to the high alloyed cold work steels.



M35 is medium-alloyed and has a good machinability containing Cobalt for increased hot hardness.  The composition of M35 makes for a good combination of toughness and hardness.  By virtue of these well balanced properties M35 has come into very wide use for cutting tools.
