Product Details

It’s fun and easy! Students love to use embedding plastic to permanently display their favorite specimen. The liquid embedding plastic is catalyzed with a hardener and then poured over your specimen in a mold. The amazing polymer hardens like glass and makes a beautiful, permanent mount. Make your own casts and put them in your classroom display case.

Kit contains one quart of embedding plastic, hardener and complete instructions. You need to provide the specimen and containers for mixing and molding.
