Mounting Moulds, Resins and Accessories

Cold Mounting Resins & Acrylics

High-quality resins with reliable properties and simple handling. These are the requirements for precise material testing. The resins from meet the highest standards and used as mounting agents for materialographic examinations or as an aid in materialography and for production processes and are therefore an integral part of the everyday activities of modern laboratories and in manufacturing processes. Cold mounting systems are particularly useful for delicate specimens that will not withstand the heat and pressure from a Hot Mounting press, and are also a good way of producing high volumes of mounted samples since 1 mix can produce many samples.

Hot Mounting Resins

(Requires Hot Mounting Press)

Hot embedding resins are extremely hard, acid-resistant and low-shrinkage. They reduce sweating and guarantee clean edges when polishing. Hot embedding resins are available in powder form and are divided into two categories:

  • Thermoresistant (Phenolic or Allylic)
  • Thermoplastic (Acrylic or Epoxy)
