Mold coating for press and blow forming processes
Technology has been developed to overcome the shortcomings of manual lubrication processes and the problems associated with oil-based automated lubrication systems and other coating options. Our flame-based carbon coating solution combusts acetylene under precise and reproducible conditions and thus separates it into hydrogen and carbon. Nearly 100% of the carbon created is then deposited as a thin layer on the blank mold surface.
The oil-free, automated mold lubrication system offers a versatile process that can be applied to all types of glass. It an effective surface coating technique because it makes use of the material-specific release and insulating properties of pure carbon. Compared with alternative methods for surface coating, the application of carbon can offer numerous advantages:
- Reproducible coating results
- Constant glass quality
- Stable temperature profiles
- Increased workplace safety
- Reduced workplace pollution
- Reduced maintenance and cleaning effort
