Corrosion-resistant moulds


sm_1_3_1_goodMould components used when processing chemically aggressive plastics or for humid or corrosive working conditions, for many plastic moulding processes such as extrusion, injection, blow and compression moulding.

The Mould steel requirements are: corrosion resistance, hardness, machinability, polishability and dimensional stability.

Superplast® Stainless is a low carbon free machining stainless holder steel. Thanks to its original chemistry and optimized heat treatment, Superplast® Stainless provides much higher machinability than standard 1.2085 with a similar corrosion resistance. It is delivered ready-for-use for mould frames and mould cavities with standard surface finish requirements.

  • Delivery condition: hardened and tempered
  • Delivery hardness: 290 – 330 HB
  • Dimensional range: up to 910 mm thick

Industeel 1.2316

Thanks to its high chromium and molybdenum content combined with high cleanliness, Industeel 1.2316 (DIN X 36 CrMo 17) is recommended for mould cores and cavities that require both corrosion resistance and high surface finish.

  • Delivery condition: hardened and tempered
  • Delivery hardness: 280 – 325 HB (or on request)
  • Dimensional range: up to 300 mm thick
