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 strip specimens, Type A and Type B, are specified in ASTM D413 only with regard to their width, 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. CCSi features the Emerson Type Rubber Buffer and the Hung Ta™ Par-Marton Type Specimen Adjuster, both of which are suitable for this application and comply with the requirements of ASTM D3183 ‘Standard Practice for Rubber — Preparation of Pieces for Test Purposes from Products’.
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.
