Hot mounting provides protection and support of the sample surface, 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. Hot mounting resins are to be used in a mounting press, where they are processed at high pressure and temperature to very uniform mounts ideal for examination in upright microscopes or other devices requiring specific sizes or shapes. Depending on your requirements, several different hot mounting compounds are available for your hot mounting process:

About our resin

Aka-Resin Epoxy is a black, mineral-filled thermosetting epoxy resin for the best possible mounting result with very low shrinkage and best edge retention. This allows for examination of the sample at very high magnifications and as there is no gap between resin and sample also cross-contamination is avoided. Aka-Resin Melamine is a white, mineral-filled thermosetting melamine resin for universal mounting with very low shrinkage. Optimal for hardness testing of case hardened samples due to the contrast provided by the white colour. Aka-Resin Acrylic is a transparent thermoplastic acrylic resin for crystal clear mounts. This is ideal for failure analysis or target preparation where observation of the sample is required. Aka-Resin Phenolic SEM is a black, carbon-filled thermosetting phenolic resin for conductive mounting used in SEM work. Aka-Resin Phenolic and Aka-Resin Phenolic-2, Black are black, wood-filled thermosetting phenolic resins for routine mounting of samples. Being inexpensive resins they are also ideal for back-filling when working with more expensive resins.
