CCC Carbon Adhesive
An electrically Carbon Conductive Cement for specimen mounting in all SEM work. After drying of the cement, immediate investigation of conductive specimens is possible. Non-conductive specimens need only to be coated with carbon or metal.
CCC contains only hydrogen, carbon and oxygen with no other residue after drying. For that reason, no characteristic spectral peaks are found in CCC. When analyzed with an energy Dispersive spectrometer, there is only the continuum to be found. If the entire specimen holder is painted with CCC, the cement will mask the holder and there are no X-rays produced in the holder, which could interfere with the analysis of the specimen itself.
Thinner is available if the cement viscosity is too thick.
