Mounting Press

The mounting press is used for hot mounting samples using a thermoset plastic compound mounting agent. This produces hard plastic mounts that are ideal for embedding samples for polishing and further analysis. This technique uses temperatures of approximately 200°C during processing; therefore, temperature sensitive samples should not be use with this mounting technique.
