Technovit 2021 LC FAST is an odour-free, light-curing 1-component plastic for the transparent embedding of sections based on high-molecular special monomers. Technovit 2021 LC FAST has been developed for fast, crystal-clear embedding in a wide variety of areas, especially for applications where a visual check is desired.
Technovit 2021 LC FAST liquid is light-curing and is cured with harmless, visible blue light in the Kulzer Technotray POWER polymerisation unit. The arbitrarily long pot life allows optimal positioning and infiltration of the sample. Since there is no mixing process, the material can be processed without losses.
The product is very easy to use, so perfect embedding can be achieved after a short training period.
Thanks to the special recipe, Technovit 2021 LC FAST does not outgas, so processing under a fume hood can be dispensed with.
After 5 minutes in the Technotray POWER under harmless blue light, crystal-clear and bubble-free specimens are produced by special polymerization regulators.
The low viscosity of Technovit 2021 LC FAST and the associated ability to fill the mold enable the sample to be stabilized over the entire cross-section and thus ensure optimal preparation.
The good abrasion resistance and the low shrinkage ensure easy mechanical workability of the ground surface and excellent microscopic evaluation.
The samples to be embedded with Technovit 2021 LC FAST must be clean and free of grease in order to avoid a separating layer between the sample and the embedding resin or possible reactions with the embedding resin.
Position the sample on the bottom of the Kulzer embedding mold and optionally fix it with Technovit 2000 LC fixing paste. Place the cylinder of the embedding mold on the bottom, fill the mold with Technovit 2021 LC FAST , vacuum infiltrate if necessary. Harden the sample for 5 minutes in the Technotray POWER and then demould.
