Ceramic Metallographic Preparation
Specimen Preparation (Class 10 Procedures)
Metallographic Class 10 sample preparation  


Ceramics in general are relatively brittle with a wide range of thermal and hardness characteristics.

Preparation Challenge:

Proper specimen preparation requires that grinding damage be minimized as early as possible followed by polishing with CMP (chemical mechanical polishing) polishing techniques.

Alumina or Sapphire
