The main advantages of cold embedding resins are great hardness and very low shrinkage, ensuring excellent edge definition. These embedding products are thus particularly suitable for specimens where the edge areas are to be examined. Due to the opaque colour of the resin, it is possible to examine individual layers under the microscope as incorrect interpretations due to depth focussing errors are effectively eliminated.
Transparent embedding polymers are tailor-made to suit the requirements of modern lab technology. They are the preferred product for the visual inspection of specimens through the embedding resin.
