UltraLife D518 Method A Die
UltraLife Cutting Dies by CCSi
CCSi manufactures these high quality UltraLife Specimen Cutting Dies for the three procedures that estimate the comparative ability of rubber and rubber-like materials to withstand the effects of normal weathering, or exposure in an atmosphere containing controlled amounts of ozone, as described in ASTM D518Standard Test Method for Rubber Deterioration — Surface Cracking’.
These same specimens are also used for the estimation of the resistance of vulcanized rubber to cracking when exposed to an atmosphere containing ozone, as described in ASTM D1149Standard Test Method for Rubber Deterioration — Surface Ozone Cracking in a Chamber’.
CCSi also manufactures, by special request, the Specimen Mounting Apparatus for D518 and D1149 Methods A, B and C, and the template for Method C.
CCSi UltraLife Specimen Dies: Quality Manufacturing
CCSi UltraLife specimen cutting dies are manufactured from homogenous, solid, high carbon content A2 tool steel. Each undergoes multi-axis precision grinding and conventional, plunge, or wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) processes ... producing a world-class, close tolerance die.
Precision grinding and EDM processes ensure true parallelism and multi-plane dimensional accuracy. The quality of materials, design, and engineering serve to provide the highest specimen quality possible, over an extended service life.
Where highly technical manufacturing techniques and processes end ... old-world craftsmanship begins!
CCSi UltraLife specimen cutting dies are individually serialized, hand-honed, and mirror polished. A protective coating of industrial enamel is applied to the non-cutting surfaces before undergoing a rigorous final inspection.
Each UltraLife specimen cutting die includes a detailed final report and certification to the applicable standard, traceable to NIST, and compliant with ISO 9001:2000 and ISO/IEC 17025. The specimen dies are placed in a plastic, blow-molded, ‘clam shell’ style case with a foam lining to protect the die during transport and storage.
