Petrography / Thin Sectioning
A complete range of instruments for petrographic sample preparation, starting with a piece of rock and finishing at 20 microns...
This exciting product range offers you the latest in technology and functional design to provide high levels of performance in preparation of minerological samples and thin section specimens.
For minerological specimens, the surface is prepared for examination with a reflected light microscope and the preparation procedure is basically similar to the preparation of metallographic specimens.
Preparing thin sections, on the other hand, requires highly specialized equipment and skills because the specimen is extremely thin, generally around 20 microns for observations with transmitted light microscope.
