VERY GOOD POLISHING AND PHOTO ETCHING PROPERTIES

Uddeholm Impax Supreme is prehardened mould steel with very good polishing and photo etching properties. It is suitable for a wide range of injection moulds, blow moulds and extrusion dies for plastic. Uddeholm Impax Supreme is supplied at 290-330 HB. In east/south east asian countries served by Assab Uddeholm Impax Supreme is sold as AS 718 Supreme.

  • Prehardened gives following benefits:
    • No hardening risks
    • No hardening costs
    • Time saving, e.g. no waiting for heat treatment
    • Lower tool cost (e.g. no distortion to rectify)
    • Modifications easily carried out
  • Can be subsequently nitrided to increase surface wear resistance or locally flame hardened to reduce surface damage
  • Good polishing and photo-etching properties
  • Good machinability
  • High purity and good homogeneity
  • Uniform hardness

Plastic moulding

  • Injection moulds for thermoplastics
  • Extrusion dies for thermoplastics
