SilcoTek coatings can improve efficiency and prevent damage to molds or extruders, while solving common material problems like corrosion and mold release. Outgassing, moisture acidity, and abrasive wear take their toll on mold quality and result in costly replacement or repair. SilcoTek coatings, like Dursan®, reduce friction and stiction while improving moisture and corrosion resistance. SilcoTek coatings bond to process surfaces and act as a non stick, hydrophobic barrier that improves surface performance.
Even under extreme pressure and temperature, SilcoTek coatings significantly improve mold release and corrosion resistance, allowing more efficient and easy release of product from molds and extending the life of extruders and dies.
Coating features and benefits include:
SilcoTek's patented silicon chemical vapor deposition (CVD) coating technology can be applied to complex or narrow part configurations without impacting even extremely tight tolerances. Comparative studies show SilcoTek coatings outperform most materials commonly used in mold and extrusion applications.
