Cold Mounting Consumables

Cold mounting is especially suited for mounting specimens that are sensitive to heat or pressure. Additionally, cold mounting does not require an investment in a mounting press and is therefore good for infrequent mounting tasks. The resin, a mixture of two or three components, is poured over the specimen after it has been placed in a mounting cup. After curing, the specimen can be taken out of the cup and processed.

Three different types of cold mounting resins are available:

Epoxy resins: Resins with virtually no shrinkage. Epoxy resins can be used for vacuum impregnation.

Acrylic resins: Resins with short curing times and moderate shrinkage. The all-round materialographic resins.

Polyester resins: Economical resins with relatively short curing times.


-Specifix-20: Room temperature curing epoxy system, particularly suited for vacuum impregnation and mounting very delicate specimens. Curing time is about 8 hours. By adding EpoDye (a fluorescent dye), the identification of pores and cracks is made very easy.

-Specifix-40: A transparent epoxy that is cured at 40-60°C, thus reducing curing times to 3½ hours. EpoDye can be added for easy identification of pores and cracks.

-Epofix: Slow-curing transparent epoxy, particularly suited for vacuum impregnation and mounting very delicate specimens. By adding Epodye (a fluorescent dye), the identification of pores and cracks is made very easy.

-ClaroCit: A fast curing clear acrylic cold mounting resin. Low shrinkage makes it suitable for universal use.
-DuroCit: A fast curing acrylic resin with filler which gives the exceptional no-shrinkage ability. It is especially suited for specimens where protection of layers is important.

-VersoCit: An inexpensive acrylic resin for quick and easy mounting of routine specimens.

-ViaFix: A fast-curing acrylic resin, ideal for filling microscopic voids, i.e. microvias and pores.

-SeriFix: An inexpensive polyester resin for the routine mounting of a large number of specimens.
