BALITHERM PRIMEFORMFor high-efficiency moulds with brilliant surfaces

×
Long lasting, brilliant injection mould surfaces
Wear resistant mould surfaces for high quality plastic components.

The mirror-polished surfaces of plastics injection moulds are very sensitive. BALITHERM® PRIMEFORM treatment is the ideal way to improve de-moulding, optimise process reliability and enhance component quality. Heavily stressed areas are rendered wear resistant and are protected against scratching, environmental factors and improper handling.

PRIMEFORM diffusion treatment increases injection mould surface hardness up to 1400 HV. This makes the moulds significantly more robust, and reduces build-up, spalling and edge embrittlement.

This treatment of injection moulds can increase productivity by up to 60%. Repairs and re-polishing are, moreover, possible without stripping and re-coating, significantly reducing maintenance and down times.

PRIMEFORM is thus the ideal treatment for plastics injection moulds for the automotive, furniture, packaging and medical technologies industries.
