Cold Mounting Resins and Acrylics

The Kemet range of cold mounting resins includes acrylic and epoxy solutions. Cold mounting systems are particularly useful for delicate specimens that will not withstand the heat and pressure from a Hot Mounting press, and are also a good way of producing high volumes of mounted samples since 1 mix can produce many samples.
