The metallographic cleaning process places specific demands on the cleaning agents used. In order to obtain gap-free polished samples, the materialographic sections have to be cleaned and degreased before they are embedded. Moreover, only optimal sample cleaning during and at the end of the preparation process ensures precise results.
Rinsing the sample under warm water after each grinding and polishing step and removing abraded particles with wet cotton wool is recommended. In order to prevent new scratches from developing, the wet cotton wool is just slightly brushed over the section's surface.
A sustainable and efficient grinding and polishing process can only be ensured if the spreading of coarser grinding and polishing grains during the subsequent finer preparation step is avoided. For that purpose, the sample is to be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaning device after the final grinding step as well as in between each polishing step.
SCAN-DIA offers an extensive range of high quality ultrasonic cleaning equipment. Cleaning accessories such as cleaning cotton wool and squeeze bottles are likewise adapted to the requirements of metallographic cleaning.
