OREC™ Options and Accessories: Model W Test Chamber Stand
OREC™ Model 0500 with 5W Stand
0500 with Model 5W Stand
The OREC™ Model W Ozone Test Chamber stands are now integral to the chamber! The stand is incorporated in all models of OREC™ Ozone Test Chambers. Bench and counter top space is at a premium in most laboratories, the Model W Stands allow “stand alone” functionality and permit location of the test chamber virtually anywhere in the laboratory, optimizing space usage.
The integral Model 5W Stand is designed for the 0500 Series cabinets and the Model 9W Stand is integral to the 0900 Series cabinets. Replacement 5W and 9W stands for existing OREC™ ozone chambers will remain available.
The stands are mounted on lockable, full swivel, caster wheels with chemical resistant thermoplastic elastomer treads that are resistant to harsh chemicals and allow for the ease of re–positioning, maintenance and cleaning. The stands also provide useful storage space behind two large access doors which feature corrosion resistant chrome hinges and dual action handles. Please note that on some models, this space is used for high concentration ozone generating equipment.
The stands are constructed of heavy-duty sheet metal and welded steel for durability and are coated with a quality hybrid powder-coat finish and color–matched to the cabinet for both ease of maintenance and aesthetics.
OREC™ Options and Accessories: DynaStretch™ Rubber Stretching Apparatus
The DynaStretch™ is designed for the dynamic stretching (flexing) of rubber and other elastomers, which are flexed during end–use such as tires, shock absorbers, vibration dampeners, shoe soles, etc. ASTM D3395 Method A DynaStretch™ Fixture
Most rubber products more readily ozonize when subjected to dynamic flexing, vibration, and other cyclical stresses or strains. The DynaStretch™ provides controlled dynamic forces for testing ozone resistance of compounds under dynamic testing conditions, conforming to ASTM D1149 Method A, Procedure A1 (formerly ASTM D3395 Method A) Standard Test Methods for Rubber Deterioration-Dynamic Ozone Cracking in a Chamber.
The DynaStretch™ is accommodated by all models of OREC™ Ozone Test Chambers and when ordered with the chamber, the DynaStretch™ is shipped installed from the factory.
DynaStretch™ Specifications
Sample size: 101.6 mm long x 25.4 mm wide, up to 6.35 mm thick
4" long x 1" wide, up to .25" thick

OREC™ Options and Accessories: Static Rubber Stretching Apparatus
OREC™ ASTM D1149 Method B, Procedure B1 Fixture
ASTM D1149 Method B, Procedure B1 Fixture
(formerly ASTM D518 Method A)
OREC™ Static Stretching Apparatus are designed for the stretching of rubber and other elastomers.
Most rubber products more readily ozonize when subjected to stresses or strains. OREC™ Static Stretching Apparatus provide controlled forces for testing ozone resistance of compounds under stress testing conditions as described in ASTM D518 which has been incorporated into ASTM D1149.
OREC™ Static Stretching Apparatus are accommodated by all models of OREC™ Ozone Test Chambers.

OREC™ Options and Accessories: Specimen Molds and Cutting Dies
CCSi manufactures an array of superior quality Ultra-Life Specimen Molds, designed with the CAD process and engineered specifically for producing the highest quality test specimens. ASTM D1171 Mold by CCSi
ASTM D1171 Specimen Mold
They are CNC/CAM manufactured of high carbon content steel, precision ground, then hand honed and polished. The molds may be plated or coated with a variety of standard or innovate materials ... from chrome to titanium oxide!
The mold platens are extra thick which prevents disfiguration from the effects of heat and pressure, as well as extending the useful life of the mold.
ASTM D3182 Mold by CCSi
ASTM D3182 Single Cavity Mold
Deeper flash pockets allow for quality specimen molding, even in overfill situations, and recesses facilitate specimen identification, grain direction, etc.
The industrial chrome plated hinges are of a unique “lever–action” design, assuring the even distribution of pressure on initial press closure and facilitate re–opening. The stainless steel handles rotate 360º in their supports to facilitate mold re–opening.
Test specimens for conducting ozone deterioration analysis, specifically D1149 Method A, Procedure A1 (formerly ASTM D3395 Method A); ASTM D1149 Method B, Procedure B2 (formerly ASTM D518 Method B); ASTM D1149 Method B, Procedure B2 (formerly ASTM D518 Method B); and ASTM D1149 Method B, Procedure B3 (formerly ASTM D518 Method C), are generally die-cut from molded sheets, but may be molded.
CCSi Ultra-Life Specimen Cutting Dies are manufactured from homogenous, solid, high carbon content A2 tool steel. Each undergoes multi-axis precision grinding and conventional, plunge, or wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) processes ... producing a world-class, close tolerance die. Examples of Specimen Cutting Dies by CCSi
Examples of Specimen Cutting Dies
The dies are derived from solid blocks of quality high carbon content steel to tolerances better than requirements. All dies also include a certificate of compliance to the applicable method and molded plastic storage case. Options for mounting to virtually any press and “mallet” handles are available.
