VCM Disc Tools

Cylindrical Samples at its Best.

Many measurements require homogeneous cylindrical samples. Examples are: Oscillating Rheology, DSC, surface tensions measurements and many more. MeltPrep has recognized this need and provides a specialized solution for the preparation of cylindrical sample for several dimensions – The VCM Disc Tool.


The VCM Disc includes one VCM Disc Insert with a sample cross section e.g. 25 mm in diameter. The height is simply adjusted by filling weight in the VCM Disc Tool, enabling maximum flexibility. Different circular dimensions can be produced by simply replacing the VCM Disc Insert (available as accessories).

The separation foils are precisely manufactured for the VCM Inserts. One set consists of one foil for the lateral surface and two cross sectional foils. The separation foils can be reused several times and are one of the key innovations of the MeltPrep Technology. There is no direct contact between the VCM Disc Insert and the sample. No cleaning is required between different materials which enables rapid and lossless sample preparation.
