Plastic-Mould-SteelHigh Alloy Steels will gain improved properties by increasing the solidification rate. This gives a fine microstructure and small, well-distributed carbides in the matrix.During Powder Metallurgy (PM), the melt stream is atomised by nitrogen gas into small droplets with an average size of 50-100 µm. The powder is filled into capsules directly in order to avoid contamination. With hot isostatic pressing (HIP), the powder is consolidated to 100% density.

By using a special refining sequence, the cleanliness of the molten steel is improved prior to atomisation. This results in improved mechanical properties and an extremely low non-metallic inclusion level (SuperClean™).The HIP’ed PM capsules are hot forged and rolled to smaller bar sizes followed by heat treatment and machining.PM steels are used in very demanding applications within cold work, plastic and cutting tools

Plastic mould steels generally fall into two specific groups, namely those for: ‘bolsters and larger tools’ and those for ‘inserts and smaller tools’. These groups may be further subdivided into stainless and non-stainless groups.

Requirements for bolsters and large tools include:
  • Pretoughened or prehardened so as not to require subsequent heat treatment
  • Good machinability
  • Good impact strength
  • Good polishability
Requirements for inserts and smaller tools include:
  • Good hardenability
  • Enhanced wear properties
  • Dimensional stability during heat treatment
  • Good impact strength
  • Good polishability

Steels with high wear resistance, mirror polishability and high erosion and corrosion resistance are required for the production of plastic items. Depending on the user application, case hardening, precipitation hardening, corrosion resistant, nitriding and maraging steels or a high performance material produced using powder metallurgy (PM) technology can be supplied.

How to choose plastic mold steel

Choosing plastic mold steel is a very important process in mold manufacturing, because the classification of plastic mold are generally on the length of plastic mold by 5 grades, grade1 is over a million times; grade 2 is 500,000-100 million; grade3 is from 300,000 to 500,000; grade4 is from 100,000 to 300,000, grade 5 is 10 million below

for Grade1 and 2, mold stell require hardness after heat-treatment reaching around HRC50 , because plastic which is easy to wear, could violate the tolerance, so we should select steel heat afetr treatment showing better performance, but also at high hardness of the state has good cutting performance, normally, it can be introduced to choose imported raw materials in the Pearl River Delta.

Usually chosen in Sweden 8407, S136, U.S. 420, H13, Europe, 2316,2344,083, or Japan SKD61, DC53 (the original mold for the metal material, the use of special circumstances.) grade 1 steel. In addition, raw plastic materials and the added filler have a great impact on the mold steel choice, especially glass fiber could have a very strong worn impact on the mold cavity surface.

Some plastic materials have acid corrosion, and some added modified enhancer or other agent, such as glass fiber lead to mold damage, so plastic material selection should be considered. There is strong general election corrosive plastic S136, 2316,420 grade1 steel, then weak corrosive plastic should elect S136, 2316,420, there SKD61, NAK80, PAK90, 718M. Strong acid plastic material: PVC, POM, PBT plastic material weak acid has: PC, PP, PMMA, PA,

Product appearance of the requirements of the selection of plastic mold material there is also a great impact, transparent pieces and surface requirements of parabolic mirror products, may choose to use the material S136, 2316,718 S, NAK80, PAK90, 420, high transparency of the mold should choose S136 and 420.

More than meeting the product requirements are from the run, but, are you involved in the demand for the cost of molds? you should also consider price, Take the S136 to compare with 2316, a difference of 55-60 yuan per kilogram, if you choose incorrectly, you may lose much money

Pre-hardened mold steel , there is grade: S136H, 2316H, 718H, 083H, hardness HB270 —- 340, 45 die by P20, 718,738,618,2311,2711, particularly low for the requirements molds, may have used S50C, 45 # steel, that is, directly in the mold cavity up to do.
