Use of PTFE and Ceramic coatings on industrial and injection molds
One of the biggest problems in industrial and injection molds, foam injection molds, Styrofoam extrusion and also parts used in food industry is that material (raw material or object cast) sticks to the surface of molds or other parts of the equipment causing decrease in efficiency and production rate and also affecting mold and injection molding machine's lifespan.
The typical solution for above mentioned problem is using graphite lubricant or silicone spray which eases separation of the object cast but doesn't deliver satisfactory results and reduces production rate and cost effective and labor-saving.
Nowadays thanks to breakthroughs made in science injection molds are coated with PTFE and Ceramic based coat which gives the surface excellent non-stick properties i.e. object cast or any bother material never sticks to the surface. This coating also expand mold and injection molding machine's lifespan as well as increasing production rate and efficiency. It should be noted that this coating is resistant to heat up to 400 ºC.
Applying the above mentioned coating is very common in different countries around the world and is also performed with highest quality and precision by our experts and technicians. The benefits in general are listed below:
- No change in cast object dimensions or texture due to dry film thickness of 20 to 30 microns
- Increase in production rate
- Decrease in cost, labor and time
- Minimizing production waste
- Removing the need for silicone spray graphite lubricant which eliminates human errors while applying the lubricant or spray
- Increasing mold's lifespan due to decreasing coefficient of friction
- Maintaining non-stick properties up to 180 ºC
Use of PTFE and Ceramic coatings on injection molding screws
One of the biggest problems in industrial and injection molds is erosion and corrosion of molding screws caused by friction and heat which leads to decrease in efficiency and production rate and also affecting mold and injection molding machine's lifespan.
Nowadays thanks to breakthroughs made in science molding screws are coated with PTFE and Ceramic based coat which gives the surface excellent non-stick anti-friction properties.
Applying the above mentioned coating is very common in different countries around the world and is also performed with highest quality and precision by our experts and technicians. The benefits in general are listed below:
- No change in molding screw dimentions due to dry film thickness of 20 to 30 microns
- Increase in production rate
- Decrease in cost, labor and time
- Minimizing production waste
- Increasing mold's lifespan due to decreasing coefficient of friction
- Maintaining non-stick and anti-friction properties up to 180 ºC
