a "Spider" mold, which is used to test for flow and knitting properties
of rubber compounds.
D3182 Flat Sheet Molds
Our ASTM D3182 molds are built to conform to the requirements of
ASTM D3182. The cavities are carefully cut to a depth of .075 as
specified in the specification. We utilize the "cutoff Bar Type"
of construction, which will allow you to refinish the entire surface
of the cavity without
concerns about the finish in the corners. Depressed areas are in
each cavity to allow for the placement of the identifying tag. These
depressions are .020" deep. Each cavity is engraved with the word
"GRAIN" and an arrow. This is to allow the identification of the
milling grain on the molded sheet. Our Flat Sheet molds are available
in one, two and four cavity configurations, hard chrome plated and
