Mounting Equipment and Consumables

Your choice of mounting equipment depends on whether you use hot or cold mounting. You can find solutions for both along with a wide range of resins and accessories for your application.

You can choose from a large variety of accessories to enable easy handling and more accurate specimen preparation using both hot and cold mounting.

  • Easy handling
  • Higher accuracy
  • Higher productivity

You can use original Struers dosing accessories to ensure resin dosing as simply and conveniently as possible. Marking and engraving accessories are extremely easy to handle and can be used in normal writing positions with a minimum of pressure. Taper section angles and support clips are available to make positioning of samples in the resin easy and as you need it every time.

Mounting Consumables

Wide variety of resins for both hot- and cold-mounting purposes

  • A resin for every need
  • Easy dosing
  • Specimen integrity

Hot mounting employs thermoplastic and thermosetting resins. You can choose between seven different resins, depending on your particular needs. You can choose thermoplastic resins that give you a clear view of the specimen, or enable electrolytic polishing with or without conductivity. Alternatively, there are thermoplastic epoxy and melamine resins with a high content of mineral and glass filler, a conductive Bakelite resin with a carbon filler, in different colors, or in different tablet sizes.

Cold-mounting resins include epoxy and acrylic resins, as well as a consumable kit containing 100 dispensing tubes and a protecting chamber for easy maintenance of the vacuum chamber.
