Product Description

CCSi manufactures this high quality Specimen Cutting Die for the measurement of the rate of vapor transmission of volatile liquids through a rubber sheet, disk, or diaphragm, as described in ASTM D814 ‘Standard Test Method for Rubber Property – Vapor Transmission of Volatile Liquids’.

The method requires that the specimens be obtained from materials in a sheet form, either from articles, or from a specially prepared test piece, neither of which are to exceed 3.2 mm (0.125 inch) in thickness.

CCSi manufactures laboratory molds, as described in ASTM D3182 ‘Standard Practice for Rubber—Materials, Equipment, and Procedures for Mixing Standard Compounds and Preparing Standard Vulcanized Sheets’, for the purpose of preparing test pieces from which the D814 specimens may be obtained. These are described in the CCSi section regarding ASTM Specimen Molds.

CCSi UltraLife Specimen Dies: Quality Manufacturing Fill 118 Copy 1 Created with Sketch.

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.
