We use a UV-glue hardening system that ensures perfect, bubble-free and very fast bonding.
- [In case of weak samples: Pre-vacuum-impregnated with low viscosity (fluorescent) epoxy]
- Vacuum-impregnated with low viscosity (fluorescent) epoxy, which is entered while the sample is in full vacuum, ensuring no bubbles and perfect bonding
- Re-ground to a level 5 microns deeper in the sample which is now ‘epoxy-reinforced’
Thin sections are:
- Treated as above
- Glued to the object glass by UV-hardening glue
- Polished (if needed)
You are welcome to contact me for further info on the materials we use.

Has anyone had experience using the EpoxyMount system from Allied High Tech Products to make mineral or glass mounts for EMPA and/or LA-ICPMS analyses? (https://consumables.alliedhightech.com/EpoxyMount-p/epxymt.htm)
Does it work well under high temperatures? or does it have any drawbacks? I have worked with the Buehler EpoxyCure resin before but have never heard of this other product until now and I am curious to hear some input.
