• Friction reduction via ultralow coefficient of friction (µ=0.030). • No effect on mold dimensions, film thickness maximum 0.5 microns. • High temperature stability up to 538o C. • Useful on both mold surfaces and moving/sliding parts.
Dicronite Dry Lubrication Benefits:
Reduced Cycle Times:
• Up to 25% cycle time reduction demolding PP undercut screw caps. • 15% cycle time reduction demolding EVA seal. • 10% cycle time reduction demolding PP measuring cup closure.
Reduced Reject Rates:
• Force-demolded PP notched snap reject rate reduced plus an added benefit of 12% cycle time reduction. • Force-demolded PP measuring cup closure reject rate reduced from ~1% to <0.1% by reduced jolting during demolding. Reduced Maintenance Costs: • 1 million cycles with no noticeable wear on 70N side loaded 3mm ejector pins. • 10x ROI (cost reduction/application cost) on sliding parts used in shaping interior honeycomb contour for molded polyamide gear levers.
Reduced Filling Pressure:
• In molds with long flow distances and small wall thickness the filling pressure may be reduced, lowering flash production and energy costs, and extending mold life.Download as PDF
