Resources Tech Briefs - Cleaning MoldMAX Molds This technical brief descibes procedures to remove corrosion product from and brighten the surface of MoldMAX® molds. Tech Briefs- EDM Of MoldMAX This Technical Brief discusses the electrical discharge machining of copper beryllium mold materials, including MoldMAX® and PROtherm. Tech Briefs - Polishing MoldMAX Molds This Technical Brief discusses how to polish the surface of MoldMAX and Protherm high performance mold materials. Tech Briefs - Processing PVC With MoldMAX Processing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can create hydrochloric acid (HCl) that can corrode even the corrosion-resistant MoldMAX tools. Damage to tooling by HCl can be prevented by proper compounding, processing, and maintenance. Tech Briefs - Surface Coatings For Plastic Molds Using MoldMAX Family of 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 to enhance wear resistance and prolong tool life, MoldMAX may be coated with a harder material. Tech Briefs - Weld Repair Of MoldMAX and PROtherm Mold Materials MoldMAX HH, MoldMAX LH and PROtherm copper beryllium alloys can be effectively and safely welded using conventional welding equipment and processes. This paper presents guidelines and recommended welding and heat treating practices.
