Optimum steel grade for your requirements
To be able to guarantee plastic production on a most economical basis, the steel for the moulds must meet particularly demanding requirements, including, for example, polishability, etchability and, above all, the longest possible tool service times.
The most important factor is the purity of the tool steel. This is the property that gives the steel its mirror polishability. When producing car headlamp lenses, for example, the purity of the steel ensures the crystal-clear surface.
Our sophisticated material solutions for this field are just one more of Kind & Co.’s sophisticated material solutions that demonstrate the enormous efficiency of our products and expertise. Whether used standard electro-slag-remelting (ESR) tool steels or our self-developed special alloys in ESR like TQ1 or CS1 for demanding applications - we find an appropriate solution to meet your requirements.
