Mould & Plate Coatings

Copper has lower hardness which leads to lower anti-abrasive property. Therefore, the area at the lower part of the moulds, where the stress increases drastically due to shells, will be more severely worn. To increase the life time of copper moulds, MECC provides uniform mould interior surface plating with suitable hardness. Most of the copper mould tubes for small size billet casting are not used in any casting system where there are rigid casting stream support, therefore they are very sensitive to wearing. We use hard chrome plating which provides life of mould tubes. The llating thickness recommended by MECC will be controllde in the best range. As for the coating of copper mould plates, based on our years of experiece, we are able to provide Chrome coating, Ni-Cr coating, Ni-Fe coating and Ni-Cr coating to meet the demand of various customers both at home and abrod.
