(Summary description)The working conditions of plastic molds are different from cold dies. Generally, they must be operated at 150°C-200°C. In addition to being subjected to a certain pressure, they must also be affected by temperature. According to the different conditions and processing methods of plastic molding molds, the basic performance requirements of plastic mold steel are roughly summarized as follows: 1. Sufficient surface hardness and wear resistance The hardness of the plastic mold is usually below 50-60HRC. The heat-treated mold should have sufficient surface hardness to ensure that the mold has sufficient rigidity. Due to the filling and flow of plastics, the mold must withstand greater compressive stress and friction, requiring the mold to maintain shape accuracy and dimensional accuracy stability, to ensure that the mold has sufficient service life. The wear resistance of the mold depends on the chemical composition of the steel and the hardness of the heat treatment, so increasing the hardness of the mold is conducive to improving its wear resistance. 2. Excellent machinability In addition to EMD processing, most plastic forming molds also require certain cutting operations and fitter repairs. In order to extend the service life of cutting tools, improve cutting performance, and reduce surface roughness, the hardness of plastic mold steel must be appropriate. 3. Good polishing performance High-quality plastic products require a small surface roughness value. For example, the surface roughness value of the injection mold cavity is required to be less than Ra0.1-0.25, and the optical surface requires Ra<0.01nm. The cavity must be polished to reduce the surface roughness value. The steel used for this purpose requires less material impurities, uniform microstructure, no fiber orientation, and no pitting or orange peel-like defects during polishing. 4. Good thermal stability The shape of plastic injection mold parts is often more complicated and difficult to process after quenching, so it should be selected as far as possible with good thermal stability. When the mold forming process is heat treated, the linear expansion coefficient is small, the heat treatment deformation is small, and the dimensional change caused by temperature difference The rate is small, the metallurgical structure and the size of the mold are stable, and the processing can be reduced or no longer processed, which can ensure the requirements of mold size accuracy and surface roughness. Carbon steels of 45 and 50 grades have certain strength and wear resistance, and are mostly used for mold base materials after tempering treatment. High-carbon tool steel and low-alloy tool steel have high strength and wear resistance after heat treatment, and are mostly used for forming parts. However, due to its large heat treatment deformation, high-carbon tool steel is only suitable for the manufacture of shaped parts with small size and simple shape. With the development of the plastic industry, the complexity and precision of plastic products are becoming higher and higher, and higher requirements are also placed on mold materials. For the manufacture of complex, precise and corrosion-resistant plastic molds, pre-hardened steel (such as PMS), corrosion-resistant steel (such as PCR) and low-carbon maraging steel (such as 18Ni-250) can be used. Cutting performance, heat treatment and polishing performance and higher strength. In addition, when selecting materials, you must also consider preventing scratches and gluing. If there is relative movement between the two surfaces, try to avoid choosing materials with the same structure. One side can be plated or nitrided under special conditions to make the two sides have different Surface structure.
