WR 1.2895 is an air-hardening steel that offers both strength and toughness. Thanks to the presence of vanadium carbides, it is much more effective in providing wear resistance. WR 1.2895 has increased hardness due to the presence of tungsten and molybdenum. Lastly, it will resist chipping and breakage better than conventional tool steels.
