Cold Mounting Resins and Accessories for Sample Preparation

MSE Supplies offers Metkon Cold Mounting Resins and Accessories for sensitive samples that are susceptible to damage from heat and pressure (like coatings, PCB, etc.). The purpose of mounting is to handle small or odd-shaped specimens, and provide good edge retention and protect fragile materials, thin layers, or coatings during sample preparation. Resin mounting produces specimens with uniform size, making it easier to handle in automatic sample holders for further sample preparation steps.

During cold mounting, the resin and the hardener are mixed and then poured into the mold (Embedding Form), which contains the sample. Hardening will happen next to allow the sample to set.

We offer two types of cold mounting resins:

DMT Acrylic cold mounting resins

  • Very fast cure time
  • It requires mixing in the ratio 2:1, powder to liquid. The mix is then poured into a mould and allowed to set

Note: You need purchase the same type powder and liquid together for mounting samples

EPOCOLD Epoxy cold mounting resins

  • Better results in good edge protection
  • Low shrinkage and moderate hardness
  • Resin/Hardener ratio: 5:1

Note: You need purchase the resin and hardener together for mounting samples
