ARALDITE AZ15 IMPREGNATION OF KAOLIN

THE IMPREGNATION MIXTURE DESCRIBED CONTAINED 100GM OF ARALDITE AZ15 AND 30GM OF HARDENER HZ15. THE MIXTURE WAS SELECTED BECAUSE OF ITS LOW VISCOSITY, HIGH PENETRATION WHEN DILUTED WITH ACETONE OR STYRENE, HIGH SHEAR AND BENDING STRENGTH, AND LONG POT LIFE. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF THE METHOD USED FOR THE IMPREGNATION OF KAOLIN SLICES. SAMPLES OF NATURAL CHALK, NORWEGIAN CLAY AND LONDON CLAY WERE ALSO TESTED, AND THE IMPREGNATION TECHNIQUE PROVED SATISFACTORY. FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO ESTABLISH AZ15 AS A STANDARD RESIN FOR CLAY IMPREGNATION. /TRRL/
