Mini Film-Maker Kit

The Specac Mini Film-maker Kit is designed to produce high-quality thin films of polymer and plastic materials for infrared transmission analysis. This product enables quick and easy hot pressing of pellets and other sample forms from ambient to 250°C, to give constant and reproducible thickness films over the range 15 to 500 microns with a formed diameter of 15 mm.

The accessory consists of an integrated hydraulic press, digital temperature controller, and heated platens, together with a lightweight film maker assembly.

This design allows the heated platens to be preheated and held at the melt-point temperature required for the sample. The film-maker assembly is separately prepared with a few tens of milligrams of the sample material and appropriate sizing ring, before being introduced to the pre-heated platens.
