Ancillary Die Casting Products
Hightower Products’ anti-solder pastes are specially formulated and designed for use in the initial treatment of new or reconditioned dies. They also work well at removing solder from the die surface.
Apply the ADCR Anti-Solder paste on with a brush when the die has reached operating temperature. By nature of its unique chemical make-up, a protective film is burnished into the die preventing soldering of aluminum to the die surface.
If you are experiencing solder build up, apply a small amount of our anti solder-paste above the solder between shots. The special additives will dissolve the solder, removing it on the next shot. Repeat if necessary.
This product is made to uniformly coat the die, ensuring a fast and smooth start up. While bringing the die up to temperature, brush our start-up paste onto the die surface for the first 10-15 shots.
Some of the hottest moving parts of a die are the ejector pins, core pins, and slides. Due to extreme temperatures, in many cases die lubricant cannot provide sufficient lubrication. Hightower Products’ pin lubricants provide excellent lubrication and clinging properties at elevated temperatures. They are highly pressure resistant, and work well in the most severe casting applications.
Cooling the casting sometimes includes immersing it in a quench tank directly after ejection from the die cast machine. This quench can sometimes cause corrosion on the casting surface, as well as on the extractor. Hightower Products’ quench compounds are specially designed to eliminate corrosion and provide optimal heat transfer.
