Meltmount Quick-Stick mounting medium

Meltmount (optical quality) is a mounting medium formulated for use in microscope slide mounting and in other optical coupling applications.Meltmount Features: Instant thermal mountants that require "no-oven-time". 100% usable; contains no solvents. Thermally, reversible for particle retrieval or re-orientation. Soluble in toluene for special techniques or clean-up. Fluid at 65 deg. C, a temperature that makes mounts "permanent" but protects the majority of specimens from thermal changes. A convenient replacement for other mounting media (Canada Balsam, Aroclor 5542, Naphrax...) Meltmount to match Chrysotile asbestos is also available - ask

Meltmount (optical quality) is a mounting medium formulated for use in microscope slide mounting and in other optical coupling applications.
Meltmount Features:

  • Instant thermal mountants that require "no-oven-time".
  • 100% usable; contains no solvents.
  • Thermally, reversible for particle retrieval or re-orientation.
  • Soluble in toluene for special techniques or clean-up.
  • Fluid at 65 deg. C, a temperature that makes mounts "permanent" but protects the majority of specimens from thermal changes.
  • A convenient replacement for other mounting media (Canada Balsam, Aroclor 5542, Naphrax...)
  • Meltmount to match Chrysotile asbestos is also available - ask

Meltmount is supplied in an easy-to-use Quick-Stick. Meltmount sticks can be applied to a slide on a hotplate. The slide is available for microscopy as soon as the specimen and coverglass are positioned and the slide has cooled. The coverglass of this "permanent" slide, however, can be lifted any time by reheating the slide. This makes it possible, for instance, to retrieve a particular particle. Each Quick-Stick weighs approximately 18g.

Cat. No. Refractive Index Application
I011-1539 1.539 Meltmount 1.539 has a refractive index (ND @ 25 deg. C) of 1.539 and an Abbe V dispersion of 45 making it optically similar to Canada Balsam and, therefore, ideal for mounting many biological specimens but without the long drying time of Canada Balsam.
I011-1582 1.582 Meltmount 1.582 has a refractive index (ND @ 25 deg. C) of 1.582 and an Abbe V dispersion of 33. Its optical clarity makes it the preferred choice for minimum visible absorption.
I011-1605 1.605 Meltmount 1.605 has a refractive index (ND @ 25 deg. C) of 1.605 and an Abbe V dispersion of 30, making it appropriate for mounting asbestiform Tremolite, Anthophyllite, and Actinolite.
I011-1662 1.662 Meltmount 1.662 has a refractive index (ND @ 25 deg. C) of 1.662 and an Abbe V dispersion of 26, optically similar to Aroclor 5442, but is PCB-free.
I011-1680 1.680 Meltmount 1.680 has a refractive index (ND @ 25 deg. C) of 1.680 and an Abbe V dispersion of 25, making it appropriate for mounting Amosite and Crocidolite asbestos.
I011-1704 1.704 Meltmount 1.704 has a refractive index (ND @ 25 deg. C) of 1.704, similar to naphrax, and an Abbe V dispersion of 24
