Whether your process is Injection Molding, Blow Molding, Extrusion Molding, Reaction Injection Molding, you can improve the speed and efficiency of your molding operation. The smooth, micro-nodular surface of Armoloy chromium coatings enables you to get shorter fill and cycle times. Armoloy reduces maintenance and downtime problems by extending the life of your mold components by as much as 10 fold. The extremely hard surface of Armoloy (HRC 78) protects against wear, particularly when glass-filled and mineral-filled resins are being formed.
Mold surfaces stay cleaner for longer periods and require less maintenance with Armoloy coatings. Even burnt on plastic or rubber can be quickly removed. Armoloy coatings can be applied to all ferrous and most non-ferrous metals, including Ampcoloy Bronze and Beryllium Copper. Armoloy coatings can maintain the textured surfaces of existing mold finishes or can be polished and buffed to improve reflectivity to SPI A-3.
The mold components that have been treated with Armoloy most often include:
