CPM 15V Tool Steel Data Sheet 

CPM 15V is a higher carbon and vanadium version of A-11 PM. The higher carbon and vanadium content provides better wear resistance while sacrificing some toughness. The exceptional wear resistance and fair toughness of CPM 15V make it an excellent candidate to replace carbide and other highly wear resistant materials in cold work tooling applications, particularly where cost effectiveness can be demonstrated.
