Just like Technovit® 4071, Technovit® 5071 is a cold embedding resin that can be employed with great efficiency. The underlying structure and type of application of both is largely identical. The special distinguishing feature of Technovit® 5071 is that it can be re-dissolved chemically. This dissolvability is the great advantage of this embedding resin and enables the resin to be removed again from valuable, e.g. expensive or unique, samples. Technovit® 5071 can be dissolved with acetone, trichloroethylene and dichloromethane. Technovit® 5071 can also be used in SEM’s. Due to its excellent surface wettability, Technovit® 5071 can be used as an adhesive for metals in the industrial sector. It can also be used in measuring technology for the application of strain gauges.
Technovit® 5071 can be employed in a variety of ways and is very suitable for routine work procedures due to its fast polymerisation time, which amounts to approx. 8 – 10 minutes. It can be mixed at ratios of 1:1 up to 3:1 of powder/liquid depending on the respective requirements and the required flow properties. We recommend a mixing ratio of 2:1 when used at room temperature.
