The correct mounting method in materialography is essential to gain meaningful insights into the structure of samples. A thorough understanding of the basic chemistry is crucial. Materials react differently to preparation methods and specially selected mounting materials are available depending on hardness, solubility and composition. A porous sample, for example, requires cold mounting in epoxy resin to ensure imaging of the microstructure. For boundary layer studies, good surface adhesion must be combined with high hardness and low removal rate, which requires the use of highly filled materials. The optimal mounting method and the choice of an appropriate material is based on basic chemistry of the material and ensures accurate and reliable analysis in materialography.
