Cold mounting resins

Mainly intended for the metallography research sector, the LAM PLAN range of cold mounting resins offers many technical and economic advantages.

The cold mounting resins are the solution for samples which do not withstand high pressure or temperature. In addition, they allow responding in a simple and efficient way to timely needs by circumventing the investment of a hot mounting press. You can achieve a large quantity of samples simultaneously while adjusting precisely the volume of mounting material and shape of the moulds.

Acrylic cold mounting resin

Acrylic resin 601.2

The fluidity of this transparent mounting resin and its very low shrinkage ensure a maximum penetration ratio in cavities. It is ideal for microelectronics, optics and microsystem applications. Compatible for conventional scanning electron microscopy (SEM) examinations.

Mono-component resin easy to dose and manipulate (no loss). Polymerisation with low temperature rise in 20 minutes in the blue light device M.M.866 + 10 minutes for the surface varnish. With no disturbing odour, it is resistant to alcohol and acids.

Epoxy cold mounting resin

Epoxy resin 603

The Resin 603 is a two-component epoxy resin without CMR substance used to achieve high quality technical metallographic mountings at room temperature. This resin is the best choice when the transparency of the coating is a requirement.

The resin has zero shrinkage, excellent adhesion to all kinds of materials and a very good chemical resistance.

With an ideally adjusted viscosity, the resin 603 is used to mount metallographic specimens with complex shapes, porosities, or delicate technical coatings.

Solvent free and CMR-free (no Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, toxic to Reproduction susptences).

Guidance


Procedure of the cold mounting

The sample is placed at the bottom of the mould; it is recommended to use clips to maintain the thin samples on its edge. Mix the resin components respecting the dosage indicated in the technical sheet. Gently blend to avoid air bubbles. Pour the resin in the mould until the desired level and let it harden on open air or in a pressure device M.M.806 in order to get rid of any bubbles or porosities.
The mounting time is about 15 minutes long.
