PRESI will attend the CONTROL exhibition in Stuttgart in Germany from 24th to 27th of april 2018. Come to visit us Hall 5 - Stand 5112 to discover our exclusive new products !


New cold mounting resins


IP-FAST epoxy resin was designed to reduce significantly controls and analysis times of the mounted samples. This transparent resin has an excellent hardness (89 ShD), a very low shrinkage and viscosity. Its big advantage is to polymerize very quickly (in 2 hours).

KM-BACK acrylic resin was designed to get back rare and unique samples which need, after controls and analysis, to be preserved in its entirety to be used again for other purposes (later inspections such as SEM or TEM). Its hardness is 83 ShD. The specificity of the KM-Back resin is that it can be 100% dissolved into acetone.

PRESI re-enters the petrology market by including geology-specific devices in its product range.


A dual-station machine for cutting and thinning samples. On the thinning zone, ability to work on up to 4 samples at once.











The only press on the market allowing such advanced management of temperature cycles.











Even more effective diamond discs, developed to reduce polishing time, obtain better results and simplify use. Available in 4 particle sizes, it is used for coated or non-coated, hot and cold mounted samples, with manual or automatic preparation.

Result :
A single IMAX R can replace over 500 abrasive papers.

• 4 particle sizes
• Greater cutting power
• Optimised service life
• No oxidation of the work surfacel
• Flatness




Moulds KM 2.0

Simply revolutionary

Easy-to-use and perfectly precise in terms of mounting sample diameter, the KM 2.0 kit comes in the form of 50 rings and 5 reusable silicone bases.
Demoulding problems are a thing of the past. The silicone base, which is totally hermetic, is easy to remove.
The 100% transparent and adjustable ring allows you identify and perfectly calibrate the sample to be polished, whilst maintaining transparency.
• No demoulding issue
• Perfect diameter control
• Transparency maintained
• Economical (less resin usage because of ring thickness)
