Precision Thickness Film Maker & Thin Film Making Kits For Polymers

The ICL Precision Thickness Film Maker is available with several film making kits and as a stand alone accessory for use with other lab presses. It is designed to hot press polymer films to precise thicknesses of 15, 25, 50, 100, 250 & 500 microns. It can be used in conjunction with either ICL’s 6" x 6" thermostat controlled heated platens (0012-4612) or the temperature controlled, water cooled heated platens with digital temperature controller (0012-6664). The Precision Thickness Film Maker and the heated platens can be combined as complete kits with the 20 ton E-Z Press™ , the 20 ton Air-EZ™ and the 12 ton Mini “C” Column press.

The Precision Thickness Film Maker produces thin films which are highly reproducible from sample to sample using hardened steel spacers to separate the two (2) mirror finish optically polished surfaces of the special anvils. The entire assembly and the sample are placed between heated platens, heated to close to the softening point and pressed with a hydraulic press to form the film. By using matte finished foil inserts between the anvils, interference fringes can be avoided. Excess sample runs off into a trough to prevent interference with the formation of the film. A water cooled chamber is provided into which the entire assembly with the film can be inserted for cooling after the film has been pressed.

For those making films from soluble polymers, we urge you to take a look at the Roto-Film™.
