Thin Sections

The department has all of the equipment necessary to create petrographic thin sections. We have 3 slab saws (a 12" tile saw, a 16" oil slab saw, and a 16" water slab saw), and Ingram thin section cut off saw, an Ingram thin section grinder, and steel plates for polishing. Instructions for using the saws can be found in the Research section of this website.
