Styrene Embedding Kit

Very low viscosity; monomeric styrene which penetrates rapidly into the tissues. It is soluble in ethanol and acetone. The infiltration and embedding can be done by styrene alone, and there is no need to dilute it with solvents. Polymerization can be done either by UV light (340-400 nm) or heat (60°C) within 2-3 days without benzoyl peroxide added; 24 hours with 1% benzoyl peroxide added as a catalyst.
