Cargille Meltmount (optical quality) is a series of mounting media which are specifically 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
  • Reversible, thermally, for particle retrieval or re-orientation
  • Soluble in toluene 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
  • PCB-Free
  • It is a direct replacement for old mounting mediums (Canada Balsam, Aroclor 5442, Naphrax...)

Melt Mount is available in a Quick-Stick form which can be used to make permanent microscope slide mounts quickly. These Melt Mount sticks can be applied to a slide on a hotplate. As soon as the specimen and coverglass are positioned and the slide is cooled you have a permanent prepared slide that can be reversed by reheating, if you should wish to retrieve a particular particle. Each Quick-Stick weighs approximately 18g.
