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.
