Field metallographic replication is required in some applications where it is not possible to remove a component from service, or the size prohibits analysis in the lab. Replicating Media allows users to create a portable copy of the microstructure of interest.

Replicating Media for metallographic replication is a two-part silicon system that is simple to use, provides excellent dimensional stability, and has a relatively quick cure time. Metallographic replicating tape, or 'Acetate', is a thin film that provides excellent spatial resolution but demands extra care.

Both Replicating Media and Replicating Tape for metallographic field use create a 3D surface replica for analysis and examination.
Benefits

Excellent Dimensional Stability:

  • Replicating Media is a two-part silicon system that is simple to use, provides excellent dimensional stability, and has a relatively quick cure time. Replicating Tape, or 'Acetate', is a thin film that provides excellent spatial resolution but demands extra care.

Non-Destructive Testing & Field Use:

 
  • Both Replicating Media and Replicating Tape create a 3D surface replica for analysis and examination. Replicating Media is ideal for flat surfaces, analysis of fracture surfaces, or applications where surface roughness measurements are critical. Replicating Tape is ideal for curved or complex surfaces and applications when time is critical.

Easy to Use:

 
  • Replicating Media is easily mixed and dispensed using the applicator gun and nozzles. Simply load the cartidge of media with a nozzle and begin use.
