Cutting Sticks

Cutting Sticks are used in guillotine paper cutters to protect the guillotine blade from hitting the metal thus increasing the blade lifetime.

Quality of the guillotine blade and frequency of the cutting process determine the correct type of Cutting Sticks:

  • Red Cutting Sticks are made of Polyvinyl Chloride. They are OEM original quality and supplied with a new guillotine by a manufacturer. This type of cutting sticks have a shore hardness of 80 – 82. Operators of guillotines with Standard and HCHC steel knives ideally use them.
  • White Cutting Sticks are made of High Density Polyethylene.  White sticks damage more easily and generally do not last as long in operation because HDPE is softer than PVC.  These cutting sticks are less expensive and have a hardness 67 – 68.
  • Grey Cutting Sticks are made of Polypropylene Polystone that is an impact resistant material. Consequently, grey sticks offer a longer operating life than the red and white cut sticks. That is why this premium option of cutting sticks is often used with HSS and Tungsten Carbide Tipped guillotine blades.
