MoldMAX® Metal Alloy Molding & Tooling
MoldMAX® is a brand name for specialty metal and plastic alloys used in injection molding. MoldMAX® is specifically designed to shorten cycle time and improve parts quality for the injection molding industry by providing high thermal conductivity compared to other materials. MoldMAX® offers a range of products made from various materials including copper, iron, nickel, silicon, aluminum, and tin. MoldMAX's main advantage is its high heat conductivity compared to steel brands such as P20 and H13. Using MoldMAX® will generate substantial cost savings when used with injection molds that cannot be sufficiently cooled using normal molding techniques and materials.
Advantages of MoldMAX®
- High mold productivity via reduced cycle time
- Heat transfer rate 3 - 4 times faster than steel products
- Flexible - can hold nickel, chromium and ceramic coatings like TiN
- Can be polished for a mirror finish
- Can be welded
Disadvantages of MoldMAX®
- Not suitable for poor part design that is difficult to cool efficiently
- Requires more mold maintenance than steel products
- Over time the surface can lose its shine and corrode thus needing additional time for cleaning procedures
