Testing With Rheometers & Viscometers
Dies are central to the design of the most popular rubber testing instruments. The sample is compressed between two platens that are manufactured to a specified, standardised design.
To get the best results, it is important to maintain consistency amongst your test samples. Generally speaking, samples of rubber are apportioned according to volume.
This can be achieved using a Volumetric Sample Cutter, available for both a Moving Die Rheometer and a Mooney Viscometer.
It is also possible to purchase additional cutting heads and sample cutting boards.
A clean machine is the easiest way to achieve consistent accurate results. Due to the sticky nature of rubber, it is often necessary to manually clean areas of the instrument where contact has been made.
