Vacuum mounting of castable mounting resins significantly improves penetration of voids and provides better edge retention.
The LSSA-011 vacuum impregnation unit (Part No. LSSA011) allows for pouring the resin under maximum vacuum and for mounting multiple specimens.
The vacuum mounting chamber is designed to fill voids in specimens by first pulling a vacuum, then pouring the resin, followed by slowly increasing the pressure in order to force or push the castable resin (epoxy, acrylic, or polyester) into the voids, porosity, cracks, or other crevices in the specimen.
