Spectrographic supplies a industry wide range of metallography equipment for cutting, mounting, grinding and polishing. We also supply quality hardness testers and microscopes. We only work with established brands and market leaders. We trial and test all our equipment, to ensure you, the client, receives only the best.
The most common and most economical resins used in metallography are phenolic resins (bakelite). This type of thermosetting resin will suit most hot mounting applications and is available in a range of colours. In cases where better performance is required such as improved sample edge retention, the use of epoxy hot mounting compounds is recommended.
