Product Description

The Scan-Dia system offers a complete range of cold setting, metallographic embedding agents and accessories. Scandiplast is a cold hardening, polyester casting resin which cures in 30 to 60 minutes. It has low shrinkage and good adhesion properties, and is transparent with a green tint. Scandiplast hardener can be substituted by Aequidir hardness equaliser to produce mounts of different hardness, and this is available in three grades to match the hardness of the materials being mounted. Scandiplex is recommended for use with porous samples. The low viscosity epoxy resin cures at a slow rate, typically 2 to 24 hours, and produces a transparent mount with a light yellow colour.

When a long pot life and a low exotherm are required, the Scandiplex hardener can be partially substituted by Varioplex. Scandiquick is a rapid setting, acrylic resin with good adhesion characteristics. It hardens in just 6 minutes, and produces a transparent mount with an orange tint. Scandiform moulds are recommended for use with all the resins, and are available in a range of re-usable sizes and shapes. A vacuum embedding set is available for mounting porous samples with Scandiplex resin. An embedding set is also available for mixing resins, consisting of a silicone work mat, 50 graduated paper cups, 20 glass stirring rods and 200 paper labelling discs.
