The Cargille MeltmountTM series of mounting media are specially formulated optical-quality thermoplastics for use in microscope slide mounting and in other optical coupling applications
Cargille MeltmountsTM Are:
Instant - they are thermal mountants and require "no oven time"
100% useable - contain no solvents
Less Expensive per slide
Reversible - thermally, for particle retrieval or re-orientation
Soluble - in toluene if needed for special techniques or clean-up
Fluid - at 65°C - a temperature chosen because it makes a permanent mount and protects the majority of specimens from thermal changes.
Direct replacements for "older style" media.
