Ionbond™ 50 B4C
PVD coating for metalforming and injection molding
Ionbond™ 50 is a high performing product in blanking, trimming, piercing, and forming of non-ferrous alloys and plastic injection molding applications involving glass or fiber filled resins. Its smoothness, toughness, and thermal stability also make it a good solution for ejector pins, and squeeze pins used in die casting applications.
The coating structure and density of Ionbond™ 50 make it a good candidate for plastic injection molding applications where corrosive attack from outgassing resins, such as PVC and PPS, occurs. Combining Ionbond™ 50 with a smooth pre-coat polish in these application will maximize its performance.
Ionbond™ 50 is deposited at 200 °C. Therefore it is recommended that tool materials be tempered above 250 °C in order to avoid softening or dimensional changes.
