12 to 13 mm (~1/2 inch) Pellet Die Sets are commonly used in material science for making larger KBr pellets for FTIR. If 13mm wont work for your application we also hold stock of 12.7mm and 12mm pellet press die sets. 

This die is made of hardened D2 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.
