1/2 inch (12.7mm) Pellet Die Sets are commonly used in material science for making larger KBr pellets for FTIR. 1/2 inch (12.7mm) Pellet Dies are easy to use and easy to handle. If 1/2 inch (12.7mm) just won't work for you we also hold stock of 13 mm or a 12 mm pellet die sets. 

The 12 inch (12.7mm) die set comes in two material options - 

D2 Tool Steel. For most pellets our standard die sets will be perfect for the job. It is made of hardened tool steel (Rockwell hardness >C60) for long lasting trouble free performance. Sleeve is polished to high tolerances to allow the hardened tool steel plunger to slide through perfectly. Plunger and spacers are made from high yield strength steel, machined and polished to high tolerance for the perfect fit. Interior surfaces are ground to mirror-like finish.

Stainless Steel.¬†For a die set with great corrosion resistance and with for those heating their dies up to max 250¬įC (482¬įF), this is a great choice. Stainless steel is a more expensive starting material and is is slower to machine which leads to than a slightly higher costs than our regular die sets. Our stainless die sets are heat treated for high hardness (~C58) and have extremely high strength (120,000 psi).¬†
