•Cutting Mounting Grinding Polishing Etching

Hot mounting

Cold mounting

Grinding and polishing

Etching

•Generating desired contrast
•Etchant selectively dissolve areas of the specimen
because of the differences in the electrochemical
potential

•Macroetching
- observation of macrostructure
- solidification pattern / chemical uniformity
- strain pattern

•Microetching
- observation of microstructure
- grain size and shape
- revealing constituent phases and carbides

Etching

•Selection of proper etchant is most important
•“Metallographic Etching” by Günter Petzow
•Some etchant is very toxic - safety

3% Nital
- revealing the grain structure
- ferritic / bainitic / martensitic phase

Sodium metabisulfite
- revealing retained austenite
