Applications & tipsBack to overview
Particularly in the case of micro hardness testing, the parts to be tested are often embedded.
Material specimens are embedded in resin to make it easier to handle them until the optimum preparation result has been achieved. Heat-treated and surface-coated specimens should always be embedded.
Note: The best results are achieved when specimens are carefully cleaned before embedding. The specimen surface must always be free of grease, so that the resin adheres optimally to the specimen material. All other contamination must also be removed.
