Mold Coatings and Stamping Dies

Mold Coatings and Stamping Dies

moldcoatingsTechmetals provides several coatings for which can greatly increase the life of plastic injection molds and aluminum die cast/injection molds.

Techmetals coatings provide several key advantages.

A coating thickness of approximately 3 microns allows for tools to be machined to final size prior to coating.

Techmetals coatings can be chemically stripped without harming the substrate material. This allows for increased tool life by stripping and recoating when the coatings do begin to wear.

Injection Molding applications

TechCoat 100: Provides good wear properties on moving components such as slides, cores, and pins
TechCoat 400: Provides improved wear properties for molding of abrasive or filled materials
TechCoat 600 : Provides a harder coating for molding of abrasive or filled materials

Die Cast Molding

TechCoat DLA coating of cores greatly reduces aluminum soldering. Field results show an average production uptime increase of 85% as a result of the reduction of aluminum soldering.

fordetailsPlease Note: To prevent damage of a part, it is important that the plater be made aware of the mold material including any spray metal or welds prior to processing.

The above is a guideline only.  Techmetals does not warrant or guarantee any of these coatings for specific use.  Coatings need to be proven on a case by case scenario.
