Technovit ® 5071 is a fast-curing 2-component embedding medium based on methyl methacrylate in powder and liquid form. Colour: green-transparent
The special feature of Technovit ® 5071 is that the material can be chemically dissolved again. The detachability is the great advantage that allows valuable samples (because of the high price or individuality) to be devested again from the plastic. Acetone, trichloroethylene and dichloromethane are suitable agents for dissolving Technovit ® 5071. Technovit ® 5071 is SEM-compatible. Due to the excellent surface wettability, Technovit ® 5071 can be used as an adhesive for metals in the industrial sector. Another application in the field of measurement technology is the application of strain gauges.
4071, Technovit ® 5071 is a very efficient cold embedding agent. Type and application are essentially identical. Technovit ® 5071 can be used very variably, thanks to the fast polymerisation time of approx. 8 – 10 minutes, Technovit ® 5071 is ideally suited for routine work. The mixing ratio can be between 1:1 and 3:1 powder/liquid ratio, depending on the requirements and required flowability. A ratio of 2:1 is recommended at room temperature.
