New Polishing Guide for Metallography by Buehler

Buehler is introducing a New Polishing Guide, chock full of application and process information for metallography lab technicians.  Topics include how polishing works and why picking the right consumables can be the difference between moving on to analysis and having to start over with another sample.  It features a selection guide for cloths, as well as expert knowledge to help choose the best quality abrasives.

Guide Includes Issues, Questions and Methods

The guide includes solutions to common issues, frequently asked questions and recommended polishing methods for electronics, aluminum, nickel, titanium, copper, composites, thermal coatings and steels. Buehler’s Polishing Guide contains expert preparation recommendations for polishing with fine, intermediate and coarse polishing cloths on any material.
