Alpase, a division of TST, offers the K100-S aluminum-cast tooling plate, the M-1 aluminum mold plate and the M-5 aluminum mold plate.


The K100-S is a dimensionally stable aluminum plate with vacuum integrity combined with improved mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and Micro-Sheen finish, the company says. The plate features 12- to 15- percent elongation, and it can be nickel plated. The plate can also be painted on both sides. Applications include low-pressure molds for shoes, skis and other products.


The M-1 is a high-density, non-heat-treated aluminum plate that is said to offer both strength and dimensional stability. It is cast with uniform equiaxed-grain structure, which makes the properties uniform in all directions, the company says.


M-5 is designed for increased corrosion resistance and dimensional stability without stress relieving. 

Alpase will be at amerimold 2012 in Booth 617. Register today for a free exhibit hall pass and a $50 conference discount compliments of MoldMaking Technology.


  • Selection Process for Stainless Mold Steels

    Successful production of plastic components associated with the extrusion, injection and compression molding greatly depends on the mold material selection.

  • To Mill or to EDM - That Is The Question

    Moldmakers are under constant pressure to cut costs and production time. Determining whether high-speed milling or EDM'ing - or perhaps a combination of both - is the best option may be what makes or breaks a job.

  • Steel Wars: Aluminum Versus Steel

    Conventional steel tools have some obvious advantages in the mold industry but aluminum proves to be gaining some strength in the competition.
