Impregnation of Fine-Grained Sediments with a Polyester Resin: A Modification of Altemuller's Method

Gail M. Ashley


A modification of Altemuller's method of impregnation of soils with a polyester resin (Vestopal H) was developed to facilitate the thin-sectioning of fine-grained sediments. The laboratory apparatus is of simple design and economical to construct and operate. The resulting solidified impregnated sediment has sufficient strength for grinding and is stable against most solvents.
