Product Description

CCSi designs and manufactures high quality specimen cutting dies completely inhouse at our facility in Akron, OH. Our complete vertical integration allows CCSi to provide exceptional quality dies at competitive prices.

Our process starts with high, quality American made tool steel. We then grind, machine, harden, wire EDM, sharpen, and dimensionally certify the dies. The wire EDM manufacturing process creates perfectly vertical interior walls. This allows the die to be sharpened repeatedly without altering the dimensional characteristics of the sample and provides excellent long term value.

All CCSi dies come with the serial and model number laser engraved for easy identification. Also included is a rugged, foam lined carrying case for protection while the die is not in use.

Our standard dies have no adapters and are intended for use in a “clicker” style press.

CCSi manufactures these high quality UltraLife Specimen Cutting Dies for the determination of the adhesion strength between plies of fabric bonded with rubber or the adhesion of the rubber layer in articles made from rubber attached to another material, as indicated in ASTM D413 ‘Standard Test Methods for Rubber Property — Adhesion to Flexible Substrate’.

The Type B specimens are specified in ASTM D413 only with regard to their width (35mm), the length being dependent upon the end user’s requirements. Therefore, these dies are manufactured individually to the specifications enumerated by the user. CCSi cutting dies are available with mallet handles, arbor press mounts, or press adapters, which facilitate the user’s specific specimen preparation protocol.

The ASTM D413 Type B test specimens require that the edges be buffed after cutting.
