We provide multi-step grinding and/or polishing of samples after proper mounting to generate deformation-free, scratch-free and highly reflective samples. The sequence of polishing, the materials selected, and the time spent polishing samples largely depend on the type of sample.
Polishing time, and abrasive media are selected are recommended based on your sample’s properties, including ductility and brittleness. We utilize abrasive paper with different grit sizes, diamond paste, alumina powder, or silica powder solution to prepare samples for the desired polished outcome.
If a smoother surface is required beyond mechanical polishing, ion milling is utilized to achieve the desired polished surface.
