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.
