Plastic Mold Steels

PX5

General Design Guidelines:

  • Compressive Strength
    Uniform hardness (approximately 32 HRc) from surface to core assures that strength and hardness at the mold center are the same as at the surface. Exceptional toughness reduces cracking problems while increasing flexibility in mold design.


     
  • Stability
    PX5 is substantially more stable than common P20-type steels. Since it has a unique heat treating process, it does not have the stresses inherent in typical quenched and tempered steels. PX5 never needs stress relieving, even after heavy machining. It has excellent dimensional stability and consistency during the machining process, and during the heating and cooling cycles of injection or compression molding.
