Resin based Mounting

  • Resin based on Petropoxy, Petrothin or clear Araldite also used based on requirements. 

  • soft/ weathered samples need to be impregnated prior to the preparation.

Wafers for Fluid Inclusion Studies

  • Single or Doubly polished thin wafers are prepared for studies such as Fluid Inclusion studies. 

Sample Powdering and Separation

  • Powdering by Pulverizer (Ball) Mill. 

  • Powdering by Tungsten based Pestle Mortar. 

  • Minerals separation by Magnetic Separator.
