Plastic Mold Material


The cost of the tooling materials in a mold usually represents only 5–10% of the tool cost. And it is an even smaller part of the total tooling cost.

Bohler-Uddeholm delivers a series of Plastics Tool Steel and Mold Materials for plastics processing which are unmatched in the industry. Our products are manufactured using both conventional and powder metallurgical production techniques. Our close cooperation with tool designers keeps us abreast of the latest demands placed on Plastics Tooling.

Tailored to the needs of the various plastics molding applications, Bohler-Uddeholm Plastic Tool Steel and Mold Materials are ideal where high polishability, improved resistance to corrosive and/or abrasive polymers, high thermal conductivity, uniformity and reliability are required.

Our large stock of Tool Steel, Copper-based Alloys, and Holder Steel can be supplied in the form of bars, cut pieces and blocks, supported by custom machining, sawing and grinding services.

From our long experience serving the Plastics Industry we have become very knowledgeable about the sizes, grades and tolerances most frequently required.
