EMBEDDING CAPSULES OR MOULDS FOR ACRYLATES

Glycol and methyl methacrylates, and therefore any acrylics including the London Resins soften polyethylene (PE) capsules. They also react with O2 during curing and will leave a sticky top layer. Pre-dried gelatine capsules, polypropylene (PP) capsules (R051 RL070) and machined Teflon moulds may be used.
When no tight fitting cover is available, simply laying a piece of kitchen cling-wrap on top of the resin will prevent the oxygen/resin reaction.

BEEM® FLAT EMBEDDING MOULD

Polyethylene

Moulded from polyethylene. The critical surfaces of the mould are transparent, facilitating accurate specimen orientation through bottom illumination. Moulds are reusable and each mould is supplied with a protective box.

The cavity measures: 12mm(L) x 5mm(W) x 3mm(D)
Overall mould measures: 52mm(L) x 40mm(W) x 5mm(H)
Storage box measures: 57mm(L)x 45mm(W) x 12.5mm(H)

FLAT EMBEDDING MOULDS FOR ACRYLICS

Polypropylene

Made from polypropylene, envelope shaped, with an inner frame and sloped edges. These boxes are the safest means of mailing or storing fragile samples.The cocoon box, and a flat embedding mould in combination, can be used to cure resin within an oven at up to 70 degrees. Acrylics (except for LR White which is not compatible with the cocoon box) should be covered with some clear shrink-wrap material. This is sufficient to exclude most oxygen and prevent that sticky surface layer.

DEEP FLAT EMBEDDING MOULD

Silicone

Single tapered end. The white silicone rubber has a very high tear strength. Because of its resistance to most epoxy resins this mould can be reused many times. 21 numbered cavities, each cavity measuring 14 x 5 x 6mm deep.

PTFE

For flat embedding with LR White, LR Gold and other oxygen sensitive resins. Can be used for both low temperature UV and thermal polymerisation. The moulds are individually machined from high grade PTFE and come with a metal clamping frame to restore flatness to the mould once the specimens are flexed loose
