Aluminum is widely acknowledged as one of the most versatile materials available today. Due mainly to a unique combination of characteristics, there is an aluminum alloy to fit almost any application imaginable.

One of aluminum’s most appealing properties is a high resistance to corrosion due to the natural oxide film that forms when it is exposed to air. Some aluminum alloys are stronger than structural steel, yet all the alloys are light in weight.

Cast Aluminum Mold Plate

This high strength 7xxx series aluminum alloy has been developed to specifically resist the occurence of exfoliation corrosion normally found in blow mold water lines. This resistance to exfoliation corrosion will minimize the problems of cracked molds and waterline damage. Its mechanical any physical properties are equal to or greater than 7075-T651 with no softness in the center of the material as is common to 7075. It is produced to a minimum of .030 inch of the normal thickness.

Aluminum Mold Plate

QC-10® is a very high strength 7xxx series aluminum mold plate especially developed for the injection mold and blow mold industries. It combines the highest strength and hardnessby thickness of any aluminum mold product and maintains very high thermal conductivity.

The product has very low quench sensitivity, therefore it has very uniform through-thickness, hardness and strength, even in very thick sections. This results in very good stability when machining. QC-10® also has superior corrosion resistance for a 7xxx series alloy. It is produced to a minimum of .030 inch over the nominal thickness.
