APM 2723 is a high alloyed powder metallurgical high speed steel corresponding to ASTM M3:2 with a combination of very good abrasive wear resistance and high compressive strength. Suitable areas of use include demanding cold-work applications like blanking of harder materials like carbon steel or cold-rolled strip steel, as well as use for cutting tools.

As with all powder metallurgy tool steels, machinability and grindability are superior to conventional high speed steel due to the very fine microstructure. Thanks to the fully homogenous material achieved in the powder metallurgy process, the dimensional stability after heat treatment is excellent. The process also ensures that the cleanliness of the steel is very high with a low amount of non-metallic inclusions.
