Titanide Tungsten DiSulfide helps Injection and Extrusion Molding

One of the best ways to reduce cycle times in injection molding equipment, leading to increased output and production efficiency, is to reduce the operating temperature and pressure requirements for the mold.  Titanide helps to accomplish this by providing a unique lubricity that enhances the flow characteristics for plastic and facilitates easier parts release.  Because of the rapid release characteristics, downstream implications eventually reduce flashes, scuffing, sticking and other blemishes to the materials.  Most high-density plastics can be used in a Titanide-treated mold, such as ABS, styrene, polycarbonate, polyethylene, and polypropylene, with enhanced results for the mold when paired with cryogenic processing from 300 Below.  Reductions in breakage and friction for component parts like ejector pins are common, with wear-reduction for slides, gibs, leader pins, lifters and bushings, too.  Movement of metal rams may wear with tight tolerance requirements for plastics or other mediums, yet tolerance is maintained efficiently by applying Titanide.
