Metallographic Compression Mounting Resins are specifically designed for mounting at elevated temperatures and pressures in compression mounting presses. Typical compression mounting resins include thermoplastics (clear acrylics) and thermosetting resins (phenolics, epoxies and diallyl phthalates).

Metallographic Castable Mounting Resins or cold mounting resins are room temperature mounting resins which typically require at least two parts (resin and hardener). Castable mounting is the preferred mounting technique for brittle materials such as microelectronics. Metallographic Castable mounting guidelines

Metallographic Grinding Papers
SiC (PSA) / SiC (Plain-backed)
ALO (PSA) / ALO (Plain-backed)
Zirconia (PSA)
Belt and Rolls

Silicon carbide (SiC) is a very hard and sharp abrasive for cutting metals and polymers. For very coarse removal, zirconia is a tougher abrasive than SiC. Metallographic Grinding guidelines

Metallographic Composite Disks
As an alternative to grinding paers and coarse polishing pads these pre-charged composite disks reduce the need for multiple ginding grinding and coarse polishing papers. Metallographic Compsite disk guidelines

Metallographic Lapping films
SiC films
Lapping films are fixed abrasives on a mylar film. Lapping films are very useful for precision surface finishing and polishing for electronic materials, with applications where flatness is very critical. Metallographic Lapping Film Guidelines

Metallographic Polishing Pads
PSA backed
Magnetic Rubber backed
Magnetic Stainless backed

- In order to obtain an accurate representation of the true microstructure, the damage produced during sectioning and mounting must be eliminated. This is accomplished by matching the appropriate abrasive with the correct polishing pad.

Metallographic Diamond Abrasives
Polycrystalline suspensions
Monocrystalline suspensions

-PC diamond is a synthetic diamond which produces enhanced surface finishes and higher removal rates than monocrystalline diamond. The use of lapping lubricants can help remove grinding swarf, reduce corrosion and extend the life of the diamond.

Metallographic Nanometer alumina is a colliodal alumina produced by a proprietary process which significantly improves the particle size distribution and increases the hardness of the alumina particles. Thus nanometer alumina is the ideal polishing abrasive for a wide range of metals and composites.

Metallographic Collodial silica and CMP sluries are relatively soft abrasives with a high chemical activity. They are ideal chemical mechanical polishing abrasive (CMP). The combination of chemical polishing with mechanical polishing increases polishing rates and improves surface finishes. It is the ideal abrasive for polishing ceramics. Combinations of colloidal silica with the polycrystalline alumina (CMP slurry) or diamond slurries have also been very successful for the intermediate polishing steps for ceramics and ceramic composites.

Metallographic Cleaning - Prior to microstructural examination residual abrasives and lubricants must be removed. Proper cleaning and drying techniques improve the final micrographs and thus improve qualitative and quantitative examination of the specimen surface.
