Plastics & Molds

Due to the ever more complex demands made on plastic materials, a large variety of additives ranging from colorants, powders, and glass fiber has developed over long usage. These additives have caused a great deal of abrasion, sticking, pitting, and corrosion of mold & dies surfaces.Many manufacturers have required the use of suitable PVD Coatings on Molds & Die surfaces. PVD Coatings exhibit better corrosion resistance, better oxidation resistance, better coating adhesion, higher hardness, improved wear resistance, and excellent mold release properties in comparison to chrome plating.
