Shipping: Free fast shipping across USA and Canada 

Material: hardened tool steel (Rockwell hardness >C60) polished to a high tolerance fit.


10 mm (1 cm) Pellets can be used for the preparation of KBr pellet for FTIR as well as a large variety of other lab applications, with increasing application in biomedical and energy storage researchers. Whatever application you need this versatile size for - the superior surface finish on our 10 mm Pellet Press Die Set (as with all our pellet die sets) will make our die set the right choice for long lasting trouble free performance. If you don't have a hydraulic press around the lab, you can use manual arbor pressed to exert sufficient force for compaction on these dies. 

Die 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 ground to mirror-like finish.
