The VacuPrep™ removes trapped air from uncured epoxy, filling open pores and cavities in samples to provide maximum bonding and support. This maintains sample integrity during abrasive preparation, reducing the chance of cracking or delamination.
The VacuPrep™ comes in two (2) versions - the standard model and a turntable model. This new variant adds a turntable with an anti-stick PTFE lined interior that operates with a rotation wheel located on the exterior right side of the unit. The turntable features markings where cups can be positioned beneath the fill tube in the cover. The operator then rotates the wheel on the right side of the unit to position each cup for drawing epoxy from the mixing cup while under vacuum.
