Cold mounting resins

Mainly intended for the metallography research sector, the LAM PLAN range of cold mounting resins offers many technical and economic advantages.

The cold mounting resins are the solution for samples which do not withstand high pressure or temperature. In addition, they allow responding in a simple and efficient way to timely needs by circumventing the investment of a hot mounting press. You can achieve a large quantity of samples simultaneously while adjusting precisely the volume of mounting material and shape of the moulds.

Cold mounting resins

Acrylic cold mounting resin

Acrylic resin 601.2

The fluidity of this transparent mounting resin and its very low shrinkage ensure a maximum penetration ratio in cavities. It is ideal for microelectronics, optics and microsystem applications. Compatible for conventional scanning electron microscopy (SEM) examinations.

Mono-component resin easy to dose and manipulate (no loss). Polymerisation with low temperature rise in 20 minutes in the blue light device M.M.866 + 10 minutes for the surface varnish. With no disturbing odour, it is resistant to alcohol and acids.

Epoxy cold mounting resin

Epoxy resin 603

Without shrinkage

The Resin 603 is a two-component epoxy resin without CMR substance used to achieve high quality technical metallographic mountings at room temperature. This resin is the best choice when the transparency of the coating is a requirement.

The resin has zero shrinkage, excellent adhesion to all kinds of materials and a very good chemical resistance.

With an ideally adjusted viscosity, the resin 603 is used to mount metallographic specimens with complex shapes, porosities, or delicate technical coatings.

Epoxy resin 603.2

Fast hardening

The Resin 603.2 is a fast-curing two-component epoxy resin without CMR substance used to make technical metallographic mountings. It must be used on materials that withstand temperatures of 140°C.

This transparent resin has zero shrinkage, excellent adhesion to all kinds of materials and very good chemical resistance.

Methyl-methacrylate resin 665 NEW

Cold setting resin for sample recovery.
Mounting is a step in metallographic sample preparation which enables samples to be ground and polished more ergonomically. Embedding the sample in a resin is usually irreversible and recovering the sample (if necessary) after embedding proves almost impossible.

Resin 665 is a cold mounting resin that has the unique ability to dissolve in acetone. This ability is transformed into a sustainable functionality to recover metallographic specimens after mounting. After metallographic processing of costly materials such as noble metals, it is often important from an economic an technical perspective to recover the samples from the mounting resin.
