mounting cup
2. Place sample in cup
3. Fill with castable mounting
compound of your choice
4. Remove EPDM up before
grinding

MOUNTING
Support clips are for use in supporting specimens during mounting. The weight and hardness of the clips should be considered
when choosing a clip. The stainless steel SamplKlip™ is the heaviest clip, but may be too hard for use when preparing a soft material.
The UniClip™ is the next heaviest clip and is softer, making it more compatible with soft materials. For metallic specimens that are to
be etched after preparation, one of the polymer clips (SamplKlip I, Specimen Support Clip, or UniClip) is best to prevent interference
with etching due to a stainless steel clip in contact with the specimen.
