Product Description
General
Nimax is a low carbon plastic mould steel delivered at a hardness of ~ 40 HRC.

Nimax is characterized by the following:
  • Excellent machinability
  • Very good welding properties
  • Good polishing and texturing properties
  • Good resistance against indentations
  • High impact and fracture toughness
  • Consistent properties through large sections
The excellent machinability and easy weldability, no preheating or post treatment necessary, reduce the manufacturing time and make the maintenance much easier. The high hardness in combination with a high toughness results in a mould with good resistance to indentations and a minimum risk for unexpected failures, leading to a safer mould and a prolonged tool life.


Applications
Nimax is suitable for many different types of applications within the plastic segment. Its excellent machinability and high toughness also makes it suitable as a holder material as well as for many engineering applications.

Examples of applications are:
  • Moulds for plastic injection
    • Packaging industry: Containers of different types
    • Automotive industry: Larger interior parts, Reflectors
    • Appliances: Panels and handles
  • Holder material for forging and die casting dies
  • Holder material for cutting tools
  • Hot runner manifolds
  • Structural components
