Mounting Consumables

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.
