Adhesives and Mountants for Materials Science & Metrology
A temporary adhesive. These wash away adhesives are used as a temporary bond for holding delicate crystals, metallurgical specimens, glass components, and ceramic substrates for dicing, slicing, drilling and polishing. These materials adhere readily to metals, glass, ceramic and then can be washed after machining away using various solvents.
- Machining or slicing single crystal metal specimens
- Grinding and polishing sapphire, ceramic, optical garnets, ferrites, and LCD glass
- Dicing and slicing germanium and silicon wafers in semiconductor production
- Dicing and slicing alumina and beryllia substrates for IC and microelectronic production
- Holding beam leads in IC devices for pull-off tests
- Dicing subminiature chip capacitors and microwave IC substrates

Available in sheet form 10"x10" (254x254mm). To use, remove the paper backing exposing the adhesive layer. The substrate is positioned on the film and pressed down firmly so that it adheres to the plastic film. No heating is required. The wafer mounted on the plastic film can then be held down using a vacuum manifold or mechanical means for dicing or scribing. After dicing or scribing, the parts can be separated from the wafer-mount 559 film by washing in acetone or MEK. Ideal for holding down silicon wafers, alumina, or glass substrates for scribing.

The M-Bond system includes M-Bond 43-B, M-Bond 600 and M-Bond 610. These adhesives are high-performance epoxy resins, which are formulated especially for bonding strain gages and special-purpose sensors. When properly cured, these adhesives are useful in temperatures ranging from -452°F to +350°F (-269°C to+ 175°C) with M-Bond 43-B, and to +700°F (+370°C) for short periods with M-bond 600 and 610. In common with other organic materials, oxidation and sublimation effects at elevated temperatures limit life. M-Bond 43B is particularly recommended for transducer applications up to+250°F (+120°C) and M-Bond 610 for transducers up to +450°F (+230°C).
Shelf Life and Post Life: At room temperature, M-Bond 600 has a useful storage life of approximately three months, while M-Bond 43-B and M-Bond 610 will last about nine months.
Once opened and mixed, M-Bond 600 and 610 have room temperature pot lives of two weeks and six weeks, respectively. Since M-Bond 43B is supplied already mixed, its pot life is about the same as its shelf life when kept in a tightly closed container. These periods of adhesive usefulness can often be doubled by refrigeration at +30° to +40°F (0 to +5°C). Never open a refrigerated bottle until it has reached room temperature.
M-Bond 43B is about 2 hours at +375°F (+190°C)
M-Bond 600 is about 3.5 hours at +350°F (170°C)
M-Bond 610 is about 3 hours at 375°F (190°C)

Cargille Meltmount™ (optical quality) is a series of mounting media which are specifically formulated for use in microscope slide mounting and in other optical coupling applications.
- Instant thermal mountants that require "no-oven-time"
- 100% Usable; contains no solvents
- Reversible, thermally, for particle retrieval or re-orientation
- Soluble in toluene for special techniques or clean-up
- Fluid at 65°C, a temperature chosen because it makes permanent mount and protects the majority of specimens from thermal changes
- It is a direct replacement for old mountant mediums (Canada Balsam, Aroclor 5442, Naphrax...)
Melt Mount is also available in a Quick-Stick™ form which can be used to make permanent microscope slide mounts quickly. These Melt Mount sticks can be applied to a slide on a hotplate. As soon as the specimen and coverglass are positioned and the slide is cooled you have a permanent prepared slide that can be reversed by reheating, if you should wish to retrieve a particular particle. Each Quick-Stick™ weighs approximately 2/3 oz. (18g).
Has a refractive index (nD @25°C) of 1.539 and an Abbe V dispersion of 45. Its optically similar to Canada Balsam and therefore ideal for mounting many biological specimens but without the long drying time of Canada Balsam.
