HPG-P (Premium)


  • HPG-P has also been improved through I Holland's ongoing R&D programme. A high quality ESR grade punch and die material suitable for formulations that are particularly abrasive. Superior quality to other 'premium' steels


  • Higher wear resistance compared to HPG-S
  • High compressive strength for improved die performance
  • Good polish-ability (due to ESR process)
  • Optimised for PharmaCote® products
  • Higher chrome content than HPG-S


  • Long tooling life
  • Resistant to fracture and die bore ringing
  • Reduced tabletting problems (i.e. sticking etc)
  • Improved corrosion resistance over HPG-S


  • For standard application on dies and punches requiring improved wear resistance
