Microtoming

Microtoming difficult samples for cross sectional work, such as coatings on paper, fabric, clothing and artwork, allow a more accurate measurement of the coating thickness without compressing or tearing away the bottom substrate layer.

A Side by side comparison of the cross-sections using a razor as opposed to a microtome is shown. In addiiton, each respective photo is shown individually (Razor and Microtome) for a coating on paper.

Further description of the Microtome hardware can be found on the equipment page.
