Plastic Injection Molding

For plastic injection molding processes, abrasive, corrosive and frictional wear are important causes of reduced tool lifetime. Tools such as cavities, cores, ejectors, runners and sprue bushings suffer abrasive wear due to glass-filled plastics, corrosive wear due to outgassing of acidic gases from resins, and frictional wear during processing and ejection steps. To extend tool life and improve product quality, Ionbond PVD and PACVD coatings provide tools with abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance and low-friction surfaces in applications involving a wide range of technical plastics such as PE, PC, PET, PP, PS, and PVC.
