Amera-Mold is engineered expressly for the plastics molding industry. Amera-Mold is a pre-hardened alloy steel delivered at Rockwell C 28–32 (special hardness upon request). As a result of its fine grain structure (95% of 8), close chemistry, and quality control, Amera-Mold assures our customers of excellent machinability and high lustrous finish unequaled in the industry
For most plastic molding operations, no further heat treatment is required. However, if the material is committed to reforging, if higher hardness is required, or if stress relieving is necessary after heavy machining, the following cycles are suggested:
Amera-Mold is delivered fully quenched and tempered to a hardness range of Brinell 285 to 321. For most operations, no further heat treatment is required. Where heat treatment is required, refer to the following procedures.
|Tempering Temperature (°F)||Yield Point (psi)||Tensile Strength (psi)||Elongation (%)||Reduction (%)||Hardness (Brinell)|
