MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS

Quality, Colour, Material, Hardness, Knife quality, Application & Circular Economy compatibility

CEco – Red (chilli) – Compound – 72-74 Shore D – Standard steel, HSS and all general knife qualities – Paper Cutters – CE 9/10

  • True general-purpose Cutting Stick for the 2020’s, the replacement for 1950’s uPVC material.
  • Low cost
  • Non-abrasive & Softer material than uPVC suitable for use with wide range of steel knife production and paper cutters both new & old, high & low construction quality
  • This stick quality can be used in harsh conditions, with no cracks or breakage, no dust or splinters to contaminate the cutting job
  • Lubricating properties for the knife and some self-healing elastic characteristics resulting in a clean cut. These more than compensate for the material hardness when compared with uPVC material
  • Alternative colour with MOQ – Grey (beige) or Blue

Original – Red (orange) – uPVC – 78-80 Shore D – Standard steel knife qualities – Paper Cutters – CE 2/10

  • Original Cutting Stick from 1950’s design
  • For use with very high-quality Standard steel knives made in Germany, Japan, UK & USA
  • Due to abrasive & hardness components & no elastic properties not suitable for HSS, TCT, HCHC or other special knife qualities
  • Not so versatile in use on paper cutters both new & old, high & low construction quality
  • But still in demand as this has been the “Original” stick for nearly 70 years!
  • Alternative colour with MOQ – Yellow (special order), Black

Eurostick – Red (chilli) / Grey (beige) – compound PPH – 73-75 Shore D – all knife qualities – Paper Cutters – CE 8/10

  • A technical material with self-healing elastic properties resulting in a clean cut
  • Gentle impact on the cutting edge of the knife resulting in extended knife life
  • For use with high-quality knives of all qualities including HSS & TCT
  • Suited more to paper cutters both new and of high construction quality where “Eurostick” performance and versatility gives the best results
  • Affordable price for a product suitable for use with a wide range of Paper Cutting Knives

Universal – Grey (beige) – PPH – 74-75 Shore D – all knife qualities – Paper Cutters & Trimmers – CE 6/10

  • Generally, the OEM choice for Paper Cutters and Trimmers
  • “Universal” unique characteristics for use with all knife qualities and both Paper Cutters & 3 Knife Trimmers
  • Strong self-healing properties resulting in a clean “contamination free” cut
  • Correct knife setting is important to give a longer life to both the Cutting Knife & Cutting Stick
  • Available in the widest range of sizes of all the Durastick materials
  • Also available in square sections – solid – no centre hole
  • Alternative colours with MOQ – Blue / Green / Natural / Pink / Red / Yellow

Premium – White / Yellow (off-white) – PAN6 – 80-82 Shore D – HSS & TCT knife qualities – Paper Cutters & Trimmers – CE 5/10

  • “Top of the range” durable material especially suited for use with HSS & TCT knives in heavy-duty cutting operations and extended hours
  • Hardness ensures that this material is both high extremely long life and gives exceptional performance under demanding conditions
  • Revised “Premium” formula introducing more “ductile” properties to give a gentler impact on the cutting edge of the knife resulting in extended knife life
  • Ductility also improves material memory and encourages self-healing characteristics resulting in both a clean cut and long life of the Cutting Stick
  • Also available in square sections – solid – no centre hole
  • Alternative colours with MOQ – Black

Premium Star – White / Yellow (off-white) – PAN66 – 82-84 Shore D – TCT & special knife qualities – 3 Knife Trimmers – CE 4/10

  • Extremely durable material especially suited for use 3 Knife Trimmers in high output Bookbinding applications
  • For use with TCT and special knife qualities
  • Hardness ensures that this material is both high extremely long life and gives exceptional performance under demanding conditions
  • Also available in square sections – solid – no centre hole
  • Alternative colours with MOQ – Black

Economy Rigid – Blue / Green – HDPE – 68-70 Shore D – Standard steel & HSS knife qualities – CE 10/10

  • The “International” standard from against which all other material options are measured.
  • Lubricating and non-abrasive properties do not compromise the Knife life
  • Suitable for use with wide range of steel knife production both Standard steel & HSS knife qualities
  • Versatile material suited for use on paper cutters both new & old, high & low construction quality

Alternative colours with MOQ – Natural White / Pink / Red / Yellow / Grey (beige) / Black

QUALITY

Cutting Sticks are produced 100% from prime material components in modern production facilities. All material compounds are specially formulated for each applicaction and meet with worldwide environmental regulations.
The plastic profiles are engineered under climatically controlled conditions which result in a consistent product quality.
The thermal instability of plastics is taken into account under a stringent quality control system.

  • Tolerances of +/- 0.01mm or +/- 0.04” are achieved on the size specification and length to 0.05% per linear metre within these controlled conditions.
  • Special requirements such as additional bevel or radius corners, holes, “quick change ends”, counter-sinking and slots can be engineered to suit individual specifications.
    Standard and Solid Square Section Plastic Cutting Sticks.

    1. Standard production of Square Sections are made with a centre hole running through the entire length of the Cutting Stick. This assists fitting and removal of the Stick from the slot in the cutting table. In addition the centre hole ensures that no “gassing” (micro porosity) appears within the plastic inside the cross section of the Cutting Stick.
    2. Solid (no centre holes) production of Square Sections are available in certain sizes and materials i.e. Universal Solid and Premium Solid qualities. Note that these may not all be stock production and the pricing is different to the Standard production with centre hole as 1.
AVAILABILITY

Advanced and flexible production techniques mean that special sizes and materials can be made in order to low quantity, with minimum lead times and at competitive prices.
Plastic Cutting Pads & Boards are also manufactured for round cornering or punching machines, rise and fall die-cutting APPLICATIONs.
Printing on Cutting Sticks is available, with the company name, logo, telephone, e-mail etc.. or product identification, for marketing purposes.
This is achieved by direct printing onto the product during the manufacturing process.
Printed Cutting Sticks – due to the personalisation of this product it is required that that the customer agrees to accept shortfall or excess production to within 10% of the ordered quantity.

Please also note:

  • Rectangle shapes (such as Polar etc…) will be printed on only ONE side of the stick.
  • Square shapes will be printed on TWO sides of the stick.
