Plastic mould steels - Heat treatable steels and precipitation hardening steels

In no other forming manufacturing process are the requirements for tool steels as varied as in plastics processing. In addition to corrosion or wear stresses, especially in the processing of fiber-reinforced plastics, aesthetic aspects are also among the most important decision criteria. Good machinability and easy heat treatment is a matter of course. Voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl offers a wide range of materials for all applications in plastics processing, from conventionally manufactured tool steels for standard applications to electrical slag-remelted materials for demanding applications and alloys melted in vacuum arc furnace for the highest performance in plastic processing to powder metallurgically produced high-performance tool steels for the highest league in tool making.

ISOPLAST – Plastic mould steel / in remelted quality
MICROCLEAN – Plastic mould steel / powder metallurgically manufactured
VMR – Special materials subjected to vacuum-melting or vacuum-remelting during at least one stage of manufacture.
