Sectioning Methyl Methacrylate Embedded Ceramic Polymers

From:Tracey Couse


I was hoping for advice with some difficulties I am having sectioning 
methyl methacrylate embedded ceramic polymers.  The main problem is that 
they are shredding and or crumbling upon sectioning, so I am left with a 
hole in the middle of my section.  The section thickness I am attempting to 
cut is 5um.  Any tricks or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help!
