Citovac Citovac

MELYTEC offers a range of equipment by Struers (Denmark) for the preparation of mineralogical, geological and ceramic specimens. This equipment covers the entire preparation process — from initial cutting to the finished thin section or polished section, ready for further microscopic examination.

Mineralogical specimens usually contain both hard and soft phases and their preparation requires accessories specially developed for these materials. We offer following equipment and consumables for preparation of specimens: a cast iron grinding disc, special SiC and B4C powders and various cloths. Pores and cracks are cemented and specimen cut-offs are glued to glass slides using SpeciFix-20/40, Eukitt and other standard resins commonly used in microscopic examination.
