It is resistant to corrosive and adhesive wear due to the presence of intense hard carbide in it.
Due to its resistance to tensile stresses and low toughness, it has been replaced by other steels
according to its usage area. For example, CPW (2436) and CPR steels can be considered when
abrasion resistance is at the forefront, and CPPU (2379) and WP7V steels can be considered
when toughness is also required.
