Superplast® Premium

Superplast® Premium: large blocks of Superplast® mould steels with enhanced properties

Material properties
Prehardened steel for very large-size moulds and tools with high hardness and structure homogeneity through the block and improved texturing properties. Reliable repair welding and high thermal conductivity.

For which tool
Plastic injection mould cores and cavities, large-size moulds for bumpers, dashboards, television panels, etc.

For which plastic
Thermoplastics (PE, PP, PS), thermosetting plastics, transparent melts, ABS

Microstructure

Thanks to a specific solidification process, Superplast® Premium steels exhibit a high homogeneity in both hardness and metallurgical structure (bainite + martensite) through the whole block, up to 1300 mm thickness. This aims at improved and reproducible performances in polishing, texturing and global surface aspect.

Reliable texturing abilities

Thanks to the absence of segregation, texturing is not limited to easy patterns anymore. SP Premium is suitable for geometrical and other complicated patterns (logos for instance).

Polishing

Polishing is guaranteed up to SPI A2 (3-6μm, mirror polishing).
Apparition of orange peel or waves is limited thanks to the absence of segregation.
