Aluminium sample prep route phenomenal

A customer experiemented swapping from their long established Struers OPS aluminium sample preparation route to a tailor-made route we devised for them.

We recommended using Aka-Lube Red lubricant at the diamond polishing stage, followed by colloidal silica with an Aka-Chemal cloth.

They were rather sceptical but felt there could be no harm in giving something different a try.
However, they were wowed. They told us: "The result on our aluminium samples is phenomenal”.
