A unique precipitation hardening stainless steel demonstrating superior toughness and corrosion resistance for demanding applications.
Ultrachem’s excellent corrosion resistance reduces both mold maintenance costs and production costs. Consistently high molding productivity is assured since cooling channels are not subjected to corrosion and loss of cooling efficiency.
Ultrachem is recommended for use in long life molds subjected to severe working conditions including corrosive materials and atmospheres, high stressed and indentation experienced in today’s fast cycling molding and extrusion operations.
Ultrachem is a chromium-nickel precipitation-hardening modified 15-5 PH stainless steel, supplied pre-hardened ~38HRC (350HB).
