Optimal release properties are critical in many injection moulding applications. The CrN-SS coating has proven its excellent demoulding properties in many commercial applications. It is produced by an optimised reactive Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) process combined with ion implantation. The CrN-SS coating can be deposited on all types of normally applied tool materials such as soft or hardened steel, stainless steel and copper-aluminum- based alloy materials. A standard CrN-SS coating is 3-5 ¥ìm thick, but this may be adjusted according to the actual application. The deposition temperature is between 150 oC and 300 oC, depending on the base material.
