A Technique for the Metallographic Preparation of Lead

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A technique is described which enables lead to be metallographically prepared to reveal the true microstructure with good edge retention. The technique consists of a series of mechanical grinding and polishing steps each of which is followed by a chemical polish. The depth of the deformed metal layer, due to grinding, was measured as well as the rate of metal removed by the chemical polish. The technique can be used to achieve relatively good results in a short period of time.
