Description

GenVac MP2 - Vacuum Impregnator is designed for precision sample impregnation for porous materials. Common applications for vacuum impregnation systems include rocks and minerals, ceramics, electronic circuit boards and other composite materials. The GenVac Series - Vacuum Impregnation system includes a separate Vacuum pump and is easily controlled through the user friendly interface. Complete with a disposable sample cup holder, the GenVac Cold mounting press encompasses everything you need to achieve the absolute best sample impregnation.

The GenVac MP2 - Vacuum Impregnation System provides a clear viewing area during sample impregnation through the large 16cm diameter transparent lid. For ease of use, the transparent lid can be completely removed to expose the bed of the vacuum chamber. This allows for easy positioning and handling of your samples. The consumable inlet tube is incorporated into the lid of the chamber and allows you to easily fill the mounting cups within the chamber. With a clear view of your samples, you can be sure to fill the cups to the necessary levels avoiding any loss of impregnation material. Operated with only a few controls located on the front of the unit, the GenVac MP2 - Cold mounting press and vacuum impregnation system provides a complete solution to the impregnation of sensitive porous materials.

FAQs

Our two primary models, the MP2 and LS2 series vacuum impregnation systems have a main chamber diameter of 18.6cm (7.3 inch) and 24.45cm (9.63 inch) respectively.

With all of our products, we offer a lifetime support guarantee which ensures we are here for you to answer any and all questions that you may have for the lifetime of your metallographic cold mounting press.

Although the tubes are considered consumables, they are certainly reusable! The reason for this is that we include excellent quality high flow epoxy resin (curing at room temperature in about 24hrs) which helps prolong the lifespan of the tubes. Using a faster curing epoxy with a cold mounting press would make the resin solidify faster and thereby block the tube faster.

Included with your GenVac - vacuum impregnator system is our universal high flow epoxy resin with no heat release during curing time. The resin cures at room temperature in about 24 hours. It is suitable for most non thermostable specimens such as IC and plastics.

Absolutely! The standard configuration of all our metallography equipment - including the best MP2 metallographic vacuum impregnator - includes all required items to get started with your metallography sample preparations.

The cold mounting metallography press is designed to remove all trapped air from the mounting material and eliminates all gaps between the specimen and the resin. It is absolutely key when preparing samples of a porous nature. Mineralogical samples frequently have porosities, cavities and cracks that require epoxy mounting under a vacuum. The MP2 is an easy to use epoxy mounting vacuum impregnation system with an easy to use interface for all laboratory technicians.
