  1. PDF Document Testing Molded Plastic Food Containers for Beryllium Transfer

    Discussed in this document, a study initiated by Materion’s Product Stewardship department demonstrates that the use of copper beryllium as a plastic tooling alloy does not risk the transfer of beryllium to the finished molded, plastic product.

  2. PDF Document Weld Repair of MoldMAX V Alloy

    Unlike MoldMAX products made up of copper and beryllium, MoldMAX V is made of copper, nickel and silicon, and it does not weld easily.

  3. PDF Document Machining Guide for MoldMAX® and PROtherm® Mold Alloys

    This Tech Brief covers recommendations about machining MoldMAX® and PROtherm® mold alloys for plastic mold making.

  4. PDF Document Cleaning MoldMAX Molds

    This Tech Brief covers procedures to remove corrosion and brighten the surface of MoldMAX® molds.

  5. PDF Document EDM Of MoldMAX

    This Tech Brief covers the electrical discharge machining of copper beryllium mold materials, including MoldMAX® and PROtherm®.

  6. PDF Document Polishing MoldMAX Molds

    This Technical Brief includes detailed information about polishing the surface of MoldMAX® and PROtherm® high performance mold alloys.

  7. PDF Document Processing PVC With MoldMAX

    Processing polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can create hydrochloric acid (HCl) that can corrode even corrosion-resistant MoldMAX tools. Damage to tooling by HCl can be prevented by proper compounding, processing and maintenance.

  8. PDF Document Surface Coatings For Plastic Molds Using MoldMAX Alloys

    MoldMAX alloys often have sufficient surface hardness to resist wear and abrasion caused by the injected resin or the mold parting line. When additional hardness is required, MoldMAX may be coated with a harder material.

  9. PDF Document Weld Repair Of MoldMAX and PROtherm Mold Alloys

    MoldMAX HH® , MoldMAX LH® and PROtherm® copper beryllium alloys can be effectively and safely welded using conventional welding equipment and processes.
