in the "Practical Guide to Fluid Inclusion Studies" of Shepherd et al. one
can read that for preparing of thin wafers of rock specimen, suitable for
fluid inclusion studies, is convenient to use a low-melting-point
dental wax (55-75 Celsius degrees).
Maybe somebody could advise me about an appropriate brand of such wax and
I tried to use the Struers' "Lakeside 70C Cement", but it melts and flows
freely at much higher temperatures, of about 150 celsius deg, which
could be harmful for low-temperature inclusions.
