  Ceramic Moulding
Posted by: BenAmmar - 03-12-2018, 10:07 AM - Forum: Benefits of Porcerax II - No Replies


I was consulting your website and one of your product interested me, the PORCERAX-ll porous metal. My enterprise, a famous French roof tiles manufacturer, is looking for a new mould material to improve the surface state of our products.  That’s why I contact you,  to know if it is possible to use PORCERAX-ll for this application (terracotta or ceramic moulding), 

 Thanking you in advance,
Best regards,

Benjamin AMMAR

Hello everyone.

We are or seem to be having trouble with the Asa gas plugging up the pores. 

ANY help as far as what your experience has shown and a solution would be greatly appreciated.

Why is hardenability so important? Does that mean higher hardness in my die?

  Why use anything other than Grade C?

The NADCA GradeC high Moly grades have higher hot tensile than H11 or H13, resist heat check  better than H11 or H13. Why does anyone use grades B,D,E,or F?

I have a soldering problem with some of my core pins. I’ve started using cooled core pins, they have improved but not eliminated the problem. What do you suggest?

  H13 double melted?
Posted by: bcast - 12-22-2014, 10:34 PM - Forum: H13 - Replies (1)

I always specify premium H13 for my dies. My understanding has been this means it is double melted. I recently started working with a new die shop who says that is not the case. Is he correct?

  Nitriding and Cracking
Posted by: bbaxter - 12-22-2014, 10:33 PM - Forum: Cracking - Replies (1)

When I nitride my dies, they tend to crack sooner, so I have stopped having them nitrided. Am I making a mistake?
