This 24 cavity mold produces a block similar to the embedding capsule block but with the following advantages: Resin polymerizes better in silicone rubber than in polypropylene or polyethylene - the rubber heats more evenly and retains the heat better than in plastic.
- It is easier to see inside the well when centering the specimen in the tip
- It is easier to remove the block from the well. There is no need for razor blades or press devices
- The finished blocks have finer tips so when you trim deeper into the block the face doesn't increase in size rapidly; therefore, constant retrimming is not necessary
