Success Stories: Low-Temperature, PVD-Based Tool Surface Coating Provides Wear Resistance to Injection Molding Applications

Low-Temperature Coating Enhances Tool Life and Performance

Using mold coatings offers numerous advantages — including longer tool life, improved tool performance and less mold maintenance needed. The last decade has seen major improvements and enhancements in surface treatment technologies.

FortiPhySM Coating Provides Longer Life for Textured Mold Surfaces

Phygen applied their FortiPhySM coatings to critical mold surfaces at Intesys. While the initial goal of reducing abrasive wear was met, an increase in corrosion resistance and mold release properties was also seen. — Tool Coating Story Here
