Metallography The heat treated samples have been cut in half transversely and mounted then ground polished and etched for examination You may need to refresh the etched surfaces • After grinding which needs to remove distorted metal from sawing during coarse grinding and polishing the specimens have been etched in 2% nital Grinding eliminates any sectioning damage and ensures a flat surface As induced artifacts can appear upon grinding it is recommended to maintain a minimal grinding time The ductile and soft metals (like solder and copper) that trap the abrasives break off upon grinding

THE METALLOGRAPHIC EXAMINATION OF ARCHAEOLOGICAL ARTIFACTS

General procedures for the metallographic examination of archaeological artifacts We may summarize the steps necessary for sample preparation as follows: 1 removal of the sample from the object 2 mounting of the sample in a small block of material--usually a plastic--so that it may be held easily 3 grinding the specimen surface flat

The austenite grain boundaries are thus destroyed in the process of forming allotriomorphic ferrite or pearlite This is not the case with displacive transformation products where even if all the austenite is consumed a vestige of the boundary is left as the prior austenite grain boundary Austenite grain boundaries and indeed prior austenite

The process ruptures some of the cavities and exposes the water to evaporation More com-monly the grinding process results in an increase in moisture content due to an increase in surface area available for absorption of atmospheric water Both of these conditions will affect the analysis of

minimal deformation remaining from the preparation process Role of Flatness in Metallographic Samples It is very important that mounting of the sample and its grinding and polishing must be done in such a way that final sample should be perfectly flat In metallography generally work is done at higher magnification of 500X to 1000X

grinding Each ground surface should have scratches that are clean-cut and uniform in size with no evidence of previous grinding scratches Cleaning before going to next stage grinding is always helpful Grinding Mediums Grinding media are silicon carbide (SiC) aluminium oxide (Al 2 O 3) emery (Al 2 O 3-Fe 3 O 4) and diamond particles

Practical examples: If a zinc coating is too thick problems during welding can arise if during forming the coating is chafed subsequent painting and consequently corrosion protection can suffer Therefore metallography plays its part in improving products and

There is an enrolment limit of 10 only for the practical session This session covers the scientific and technical principles of preparing metallographic specimens in order to perfectly reveal the true microstructure of metals and materials Our process is broken into the following categories: sampling sectioning mounting grinding

Microscopic Examination Microstructure Analysis to Evaluate Materials During Microstructure Analysis of metals and alloys a Microscopic Examination is conducted to study the microstructural features of the material under magnification The properties of a material determine how well it will perform under a given application and these properties are dependent on the structure of the material

Carl Zeiss is offering a great variety of microscope and imaging related products for applications in metallography as well as metallographic studies Learn how to benefit from our complete light and scanning electron microscopy portfolio for metallography to develop novel alloy materials or perform quality control

2 METALLOGRAPHY the practitioner must have a thorough understanding of the test method its application and the interpretation of test data Interpretation of the data from these tests requires an understanding of the manufacturing process since the macrostructure is dependent on the solidification and hot- or cold-working procedures used
