Good toughness at lower hardness lever.
Good wear at high hardness lever.
L6 was designed for general purpose tools where greater toughness is required, such as forming rolls, punches, blanking dies, shear blades,and spindles.
L6 has a machinability rating of 85% of a 1% carbon tool steel.
L6 should be annealed at 1400°F and held for one hour per inch of thickness. Cool at 20°F per hour to 900°F and then air-cool. A maximum hardness of 217 Brinell should be obtained.
L6 should be preheated to 1200°F then heated to 1500°to 1550°F and held for one hour per inch of thickness. Quench in oil to 150°F followed immediately by tempering. L6 can also be air quenched in sections less than 1" thick.
