MOLDMAX® PLASTIC TOOLING ALLOYS

HIGH PERFORMANCE ALLOYS FOR INJECTION & BLOW MOLDING

 

HIGH PERFORMANCE ALLOYS FOR INJECTION & BLOW MOLDING

Materion Performance Alloys offers a variety of MoldMAX alloys to meet the high production demands of the plastic processing industry. These alloys provide a unique combination of strength, thermal conductivity and good polishability that has important benefits for the plastic molding process, including:

  • Shorter cycle time
  • Improved part quality

Download the presentation from our recent webinar, "Copper Alloys for Injection, Thermoform and Blow Molds," presented by Bob Kusner, Materion Performance Alloys Manager of Technical Services and MoldMaking Technology Magazine. The webinar was recorded and can be accessed via MoldMaking Technology Magazine.

Injection Molding

MoldMAX resists abrasive wear and galling, exhibiting excellent wear resistance when used for injection mold components and cavity inserts in direct contact with plastic parts in the injection molding process.

Applications:

  • Core and cavity inserts
  • Sliders and lifters
  • Hot run tips
  • Spruce bushings
  • Core pins
  • Ejector Sleeve
