Mounting – also referred to as embedding – has several purposes. Mounting provides protection/support of the sample surface and edges, makes it easier to handle the sample, allows for several small samples in one mount and gives uniform sizes for clamping in a sample holder. To meet your mounting requirements both cold mounting and hot mounting systems are available.

Cold Mounting

Cold mounting has to be used for embedding of heat sensitive or fragile samples and when vacuum impregnation or infiltration of porous samples is required. Cold mounting is also often preferred, when only a few samples are prepared. We have the two main systems available, Epoxy and Acrylic, each offering different features and benefits. They both consist of two components that cure after being mixed together.

Hot Mounting

Hot mounting requires a mounting press, where the resin is processed at high pressure and temperature. Hot mounting provides very uniform samples in a short time, and depending on the resin used, quite different characteristics can be achieved. Our range of high performance hot mounting resins includes Epoxy, Melamine, Acrylic, Phenolic SEM and Phenolic.

We also have a wide range of embedding accessories. You find moulds, silicone lids, Aka-NoStick, protection caps, mixing kits and clips under accessories. These accessories help you obtain the best possible mounting result, which will save you time in the following preparation steps.
