Microstructural Analysis

Material development is supported using in-house microscopy equipment, with mangifications up to 3,500x. Mentis utilizes this equipment on developmental programs to optimize laminate designs, resin development, cure parameters, and coatings.

Equipment Available:

  • Hirox KH-7700 Digital Microscope
  • Olympus SZH10 Digital Microscope
  • Buehler Isomet 4000 Linear Cutting Saw
  • Buehler Ecomet 4000 Polishing Wheel

When needed, Mentis has employed other techniques such as:

  • Computer Tomography Scanning (CT Scans)
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX)
  • X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
