Light Weight Slab Forming Mold

Comparison Date for LIGHT WEIGHT MOLD (Aluminium/YH75) and CONVENTIONAL TYPE (Carbon Steel/S55C)

1.Light weight

Weight is approx. 1/3 than that of carbon steel.
Improved the safety. Shortened the time for installing / removing.

Material Specific gravity
YH75 2.82
S55C 7.90

2.Excellent heat conductivity

Approx. 2 times than that of carbon steel.
Substantially shortened a shot cycle at the time of forming.

Material Heat conductivity
YH75 0.31
S55C 0.14

3.High hardness

Nearly equal to carbon steel.

4.Excellent anti-corrosion

It is not almost corroded by resin, a kind of rubber, plasticizer, antistatic agent, mold-releasing agent, etc.

5.High fatigue strength

Approx. 3 times than that of carbon steel.
As the material for press mold, plastic mold, etc., it is the most suitable for the use where repeated load is imposed.
