Downloadable PDFarrow13Support Film on Grids

Support Film on grids has become a main product line for us since the demand for high quality coated grids has increased. To make your microscopy work easier and to save you a great deal of time we offer you a complete line. All of our coated grids are optically checked followed by batch testing in the EM. Packed in grid storage box. All the grids below (except for the Beryllium Support Films) are also available with the following options:

  • Molybdenum grids in place of Au, Cu, or Ni
  • As Silicone free
  • With ultra-thin thickness (thickness can be requested)
  • Extra thick thickness

NOTE: All of our film is laid on the shiny side of the grid.

arrow114. Formvar/ Silicon Monoxide

A formvar film stabilized with a thin film of silicon monoxide. Silicon monoxide produces a desirable support film because it offers low background contrast and it is stable under the electron beam and it is more hydrophilic than carbon film.

arrow119. Beryllium Support Films

A deposition of 250 Angstroms thick Beryllium onto the 0.005" thick, 25x25mm squares of a Cu substrate. The Be can be removed by dissolving the substrate in nitric acid (50:50). The Be film will then be removed from the acid, washed in distilled water and mounted on TEM grids. A Be support film will reduce background interference to a minimum and it is particularly useful where analyses for C or Si are required, so that these alternative supports cannot be used. Another advantage of the Be support is its very fine grain size which produces a very sharp ring pattern for in-situ calibration.
