VACUMET is designed for embedding and impregnation of porous materials. It removes the trapped air from the mounting material and eliminates the gaps between the specimen and the resin. Most mineralogical specimens have porosities, cavities and cracks and ther fore need to be embedged under vacuum. VACUMET fulfills this requir ment easily and efficiently. In addition, VACUMET can also be used for glueing the specimens on the glass slides for further processing in thin section preparation.
