Areas of application Technotherm 2000 is used wherever freedom from marginal gaps to the embedded samples is required. Due to the excellent melting properties during the embedding process, Technotherm 2000 penetrates deep into porous surfaces or sample undercuts. It is THE universal hot embedding medium. Technotherm 2000 is resistant to all etching and cleaning agents commonly used in the laboratory.
Curing takes place, depending on the diameter of the embedding cylinder, at:
160 – 180 °C
80 – 90 bar in
11 – 15 minutes
in any commercially available warm embedding press.
