Corroplast for most demanding corrosion resistant plastic molds
Corroplast is a pre-hardened free machining stainless steel mold base material. Corroplast is the ideal material to resist corrosion associated with high humidity environments and when corrosive resins are used in the production. In addition, Corroplast is the preferred mold base material for medical and food packaging applications.
Advantages of Corroplast at a glance
- Homogeneous microstructure for improved machinability
- Re-sulphurized chemistry for optimal machinability
- Minimum levels of course carbides to improve the life of cutting tools
- Reduced carbon for improved weldability
- Lower carbon and higher chrome content for improved corrosion resistance
