Schmolz +Bickenbach featured a variety of mold steels at NPE2015, including Corroplast FM stainless steel, and its lines of Formadur and Sorel Forge SF steels.

Offering improved microstructure, machinability and corrosion resistance, Corroplast FM mold steel is well-suited for mold bases, manifold plates and other plastics tooling used in processing corrosive resins or in corrosive manufacturing environments.

Formadur PHX Superclean is a highly corrosion-resistant, precipitation-hardening stainless mold steel offering both toughness and mechanical strength. This electroslag remelting (ESR) grade is said to exhibit high cleanliness levels and polishability, and is supplied age-hardened to 40 HRc.

SF-2000 and SF-2000 HH prehardened mold steels are engineered for uniform hardness, high polishability and texturing characteristics, and consistent machinability. They are well-suited for large plastic injection molds. SF-2050 prehardened (40 HRc) steel is designed specifically for applications that require improved abrasive wear resistance and high compression strength. SF-2000 LQ prehardened (36 HRc) ESR steel exhibits high cleanliness and homogeneity, and is designed for applications that require high polishability and surface finish.
