Metallographic Preparation Guidelines

Metallographic specimen preparation requires knowledge of the specimen properties, the most important characteristics are the hardness and ductility of the metallographic specimen. Based on these material properties, the proper metallographic consumables and equipment parameters can be determined. The following chart shows the hardness and ductility for most metallographic material classes that are analyzed by metallographic techniques. Specimen procedures are fundamentally derived from this metallographic applications chart.
