Stringent requirements are placed on the materials used to make these moulds due to the harsh environment and industrial stress to which plastic mould steel is subjected. The importance of selecting the correct steel grade for your plastic moulding cannot be overemphasized.
Beginning with the innovative Stainless Concept system comprising metallurgically balanced stainless grades, ASSAB delivers a unique combination of corrosion resistance, wear resistance and high strength. Stavax ESR for example has set the industry standard; it is the original corrosion resistant steel and the classic choice in environments where corrosion is unacceptable and the demands on hygiene are particularly high. Such precise mechanical properties make steel grades from the Stainless Concept perfect not only in traditional tooling applications, but also for manufacturing components with high demands.
The Stainless Concept consists of Stavax ESR, Mirrax ESR, Mirrax 40, Corrax, Royalloy and Elmax SuperClean.
Regardless the specification and application – injection moulding, blow moulding, extrusion, compression moulding or transfer moulding, you will find a suitable grade within our comprehensive product programme.
