Materion Webinar on Maximizing Results with Copper Alloy Molds
This webinar from Materion, November 6 at 2 pm, will focus on the various copper alloys used in the plastic molding industry.
After diamond and silver, copper is the most thermally conductive of the elements. In it pure form, copper is not strong enough to be using as a mold material. However, by alloying copper, it can be made as strong as steel while retaining much of its thermal conductivity. This webinar from Materion, November 6 at 2 pm, will focus on the various copper alloys used in the plastic molding industry and identifying the strengths and weaknesses of each alloy.

Primary webinar topics include what qualities make a good mold, how high thermal conductivity aids in productivity, how to best use a copper alloy and avoid common problems, and special fabrication issues while working with copper alloys.
The webinar will be hosted by Robert Kusner, innovation pipeline manager at Materion Performance Alloys and Composites. Kusner holds an undergraduate degree in physics and electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and earned his PhD in physics from Case Western Reserve University.
For the past 20 years, Kusner has supported the development and use of Materion alloys in many applications, including copper beryllium and non-beryllium containing copper alloys in the plastic molding market.
