Save Time and Improve Sample Quality with Vacuum Impregnation

Using epoxy to mount a sample before processing is an effective way to provide additional support to samples during subsequent grinding and polishing and is especially important with delicate and porous samples. However, to get this important internal support, the sample must be penetrated as fully as possible. Vacuum impregnation has been widely recognized as …

Sample mounting – when method selection really matters!

Mounting presses are an excellent way to mount many specimens, and can be the most efficient and economical choice for many samples.  However, the heat and pressure can cause significant damage to many samples – especially soft, porous or friable materials and coatings.  In these cases, castable mounting systems must be used. Castable epoxy systems …

Metallographic Preparation of Medical Implants – Stents, Orthopedics…

Medical implants are increasingly used today, stemming from newer alloy developments and manufacturing techniques, such as additive manufacturing, necessitating a closer outlook at their microstructure usually with good mechanical strength, wear and corrosion resistant properties. Metallographic preparation of these components allows thorough inspection of microstructures, coatings (mainly hydroxyapatite) and potential imperfections from new manufacturing techniques. …
