Film Extrusion

Film extrusion of plastics such as PVC poses unique challenges to tools. The corrosive outgassing of the resin attacks the traditionally chrome-plated tools, causing tool failures and production stoppages. Ionbond PVD coatings provide the corrosion resistance to protect and improve tool life. The abrasive wear resistance of Ionbond PVD coatings facilitates the cleaning of the tools after batch or color changes without affecting its surface quality.
