Tool steels are characterized by high hardness, resistance to abrasion, and good resistance to softening at elevated temperatures. These alloys are commonly utilized in the Tool & Die industry which Barron Industries has proudly served for more than 30 years. Barron Industries was at the forefront in developing the lost foam process that is now the gold standard used to produce near-net-shape steel castings for trimming, forming and flanging operations.
