AcryMount Embedding Resin Instructions

EMS Catalog #1256

AcryMount is a fast curing acrylic resin in the form of a powder and liquid. AcryMount is specially developed for embedding of ordinary materialographic specimens when a relatively high shrinkage can be tolerated.

The good flow quantities permit all pores and cracks in the specimens to be filled with the resin.

After hardening, AcryMount can be cut, ground, polished, etc.


If you do not have access to a weight, you may use a volume portioning instead: 2 parts powder, 1 part liquid.
: we recommend weighing to obtain the best possible mounting quality.
