Chemically Resistant adhesives
Schmolz + Bickenbach THYROPLAST® 2316 Plastic Mold Steel  (Unverified Data**)
Categories: Metal; Ferrous Metal; Tool Steel; Mold Steel

Material Notes: To manufacture plastic parts, it is necessary to have steels with a high wear resistance, good polishability and etching ability, adequate corrosion resistance, and cost efficient machining properties. Employed for this purpose, as a function of the requirements are case hardening steels, quenched and tempered steels, corrosion-resistant steels, nitriding steels and maraging steels.

Increased corrosion resistance in comparison with THYROPLAST 2083, good polishability. This steel is usually supplied in quenched and tempered condition with a working hardness of approximately 300 HB.


  • Molds for processing plastics with corrosive action

Schmolz + Bickenbach is the new name of Swiss Steel.
