Extrusion and injection mold machines can benefit from precision CVD coatings to prevent damage to molds or extruders. Outgassing, moisture acidity, and abrasive wear can take their toll on mold quality and result in costly replacement or repair. SilcoTek® coatings offer greater wear resistance while reducing friction and improving corrosion resistance.
