Cast versus Extruded: What's the Difference? Why it matters...

Not all cutting surfaces are created equal. Industrial strength cutting surfaces are designed specifically for die cutting applications.

There are two styles of manufacturing processes: Cast and Extruded.

The variations in manufacturing impact the properties and performance of the cutting surface.

Extruded cutting boards

.....are a cost effective cutting surface typically used in low production or short run applications. The cost effective manufacturing process involves quick cycles of heating and cooling the polypropylene material. This manufacturing style results in a cutting surface with greater tolerance of parallelism and more tension stored in the board. This surface tension is released during die cutting and the board begins to bow. Extruded cutting boards are ideal for low production or short run applications - the board is designed to be disposable.

Cast cutting boards

.....are high quality cutting surfaces that deliver better tool wear, longer pad wear and cleaner cuts through material. The manufacturing process involves longer cycles of heating and cooling the polypropylene material. This manufacturing style results in a cutting surface with much tighter tolerance of parallelism (+/- .008") and significantly reduced tension which eliminates the bowing effect experienced when cutting on an extruded cutting surface. Cast polypropylene cutting boards are the ideal choice for all die cut applications. Designed specifically for die cutting, these boards are proven to demonstrate better cutting quality, longer pad wear, better tool wear, and less defective parts - resulting in more production. Cast cutting boards are designed to have a longer life than extruded boards and are often resurfaced / planed to further extend the board life usage.

Store Boards Horizontally to Prevent Warping & Arching

Avoid concentrating cuts in only one area of the pad - Use as much of the cutting pad as possible

Rotate & Flip the Pad for Even Wear

Sharpen your cutting dies periodically

A maximum cutting depth of 0.01" (0.3 mm) is recommended
