CCSi manufactures these high quality UltraLife Specimen Cutting Dies for the determination of impact resilience and penetration of rubber by means of the Goodyear-Healey rebound pendulum instrument, as described in ASTM D1054 ‘Test Method for Rubber Property-Resilience Using a Goodyear-Healey Rebound Pendulum’.
The Goodyear-Healey Rebound test is applicable to those substances classified as thermoplastic elastomers, vulcanized (thermoset) rubber, elastomeric materials, and cellular materials.
The material is die cut from sheets of uncured compounded rubber approximately 2 mm (0.85 in.) in thickness. The pieces are then stacked in the cavities to the appropriate thickness and molded into rectangular blocks using the CCSi D1054 Specimen Mold.
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.
