We are a major fabricator that provides finished Mold Platen to your drawings specs. With our complete machine shop, your insulating plates will be ready to bolt on with no further machining.
When installed, Thermalate sheets will decrease heat transfer between the Mold and Press Platens. This results in a more even temperature throughout the process. Press insulation is a particularly demanding application for any material since it is subjected to high temperatures and molding pressures, as well as exposure to Oils and Hydraulic Fluids.
Our Thermalate grades are Glass Mat reinforced Thermoset Polyester laminates. Their physical properties include high heat resistance, high compressive set, low thermal conductivity, and low moisture absorption, These laminates provide for more precise temperature control as well as uniformity of temperature, reducing or eliminating “Cold Spots” in a mold.
