VACUMET is designed for embedding and impregnation of porous materials. It removes trapped air from the mounting material and eliminates gaps between the specimen and resin.  Most mineralogical specimens have porosity, cavities and cracks and therefore need to be embedded under vacuum. VACUMET fulfills this requirement easily and efficiently. In addition, VACUMET can also be used for gluing specimens on glass slides for further thin section preparation.
