Alpase is an integrated producer of M-1, M-5 and K100-S aluminum cast products. M-1 and M-5 mold plate are well-suited for tools made by blow, injection, compression, reaction injection and rotational molding, as well as heavy- and thin-gauge vacuum forming. Widely used in the semiconductor market, these materials offer high machinability and stability, along with high thermal conductivity. M1 also is said to outperform other aluminum alloys at higher molding temperatures.

K100-S cast tooling plate features a micro-sheen finish, high thickness tolerances and guaranteed flatness before and after machining, according to the company. It also offers vacuum integrity, improved mechanical properties, increased corrosion resistance and lower density.
