Samples can be mounted in resin and polished to reveal grain structures, image cross-sections, or to increase the accuracy of EDS measurements. Resin mount holders for the Phenom XL clamp the sample near the top surface, so all samples will remain level and at the same working distance without modifying their bottom surfaces.

Resin mount sample inserts are available in three standard sizes: 25mm (1 inch), 32mm (1 ¼ inch) and 40mm (1 ½ inch) diameters.
