Mold Tool Materials
We make plastic injection molding tools and dies from S136H, 2316H, H13, 2316H, P20, 8407 (hardened) and NAK80 (hardened). Additionally, we offer standard SPI finishes, EDM texturing and a range of etched textures.
Each of these material types will have distinct advantages for certain applications. Considerations include:
Cost of the raw material
Durability and resistance to corrosion or abrasion
Ability to take a high surface polish
Time required for heat treatment
Expected tool life

Plastic Injected Part Materials
There are thousands of thermoforming and thermosetting plastics to choose from for your project. In addition, mechanical and chemical characteristics can also be enhanced with additives like glass fibers, UV stabilizers and lubricants. Our materials sheet will give you more detailed information about the standard types and the tolerances to expect with each.
Your choice of resins may depend upon one or more of the following considerations:
UV, chemical, abrasion and impact resistance
Cost of raw material
Weight and density
