I have read with great interest the posts on thin sections over the last few
days, I thought maybe someone else would post about this so I would not have
to type. Still recovering from shoulder surgery.
Most thin section manufacturers for only about a dollar extra can attached
the cover slips with a removable thermoplastic adhesive. You can have the
protection and the availability of the polished surface for further analysis
at a later time.
Paul and I routinely have thins made and get polished for micro probe work
and covered for microscopy work. We have not thus far had a problem with
rusting of the polished uncovered thins. But that is not to say we may not
over the coming years.
