Technovit® 3040 yellow is a fast-curing (5-10 minutes, depending on room temperature) methyl methacrylate-based resin.
Its chemical composition warrants a firm, durable bond with Technovit and secure fixing of the specimens to the Histobloc.
Technovit® 3040 consists of two components- powder and liquid- allowing simple mixing, easy adhering to the specimen, and fast curing. For fixing the mounts, a highly viscous consistency (i.e., a mixing ratio of approximately 2-3 parts per volume powder: 1 part per volume liquid) has proven to be the most advantageous.
Technovit kits contain Hazardous Material and must be shipped seperately by FedEx Ground. There is a harzardous material handling fee and a harzardous container fee added to each item purchased.
