Mold releasability

Releasability of plating is an indispensable function to facilitate removal of products from various molds, while composite functions, including wear resistance, lubricity, thermal resistance & corrosion resistance, need to be combined to prolong the life of molds.
Type of plating Characteristic value Uses
Industrial chromium plating - The life of molds is dramatically prolonged by good releasability as well as wear resistance and high hardness. Various molds
- Chromium-PTFE (Teflon) composite films with chromium-plating-specific microcracks or micropores impregnated with PTFE, which excels in self-lubricity and non-adhesiveness has been commercialized.
Releasable composite plating - Combining the excellent non-adhesiveness, low friction coefficient, and self-lubricity of graphite fluoride particles or Teflon particles with the excellent uniform electrodeposition properties of electroless nickel plating, electroless nickel-graphite fluoride composite plating and electroless nickel-Teflon composite plating have been commercialized. Plastic lenses, molds
