Delve into Composite Material Sample Preparation

Delve into Composite Material Sample Preparation Image Lake Bluff, IL… Buehler’s material scientist experts are presenting ‘Delve into Composite Material Metallography’ an educational webinar on August 25, 2021. The first presentation will be held at 11:00am BST by Dr. Evans Mogire, EMEA Laboratory and Technology Manager and the second one at 12:00pm CDT by Dr. Mike Keeble, US Laboratory and Technology Manager. The registration link to both sessions is available on the Buehler webinar registration page.

Composite materials, are formed by combining matrix constituents, that can either be organic, metal or ceramic in nature with reinforcement materials in fiber, lamina or particulate form for improved mechanical performance at significant weight savings. Buehler has created the composites educational webinar to meet the quality assessment needs due to the growth of the composite materials by industry. Composite materials are used in a wide variety of markets, including aerospace, architecture, automotive, energy, infrastructure, marine, military and sports and recreation.

Buehler’s webinar will address common preparation problems, highlight various parameters to consider in sectioning, mounting, grinding/polishing, and analysis stages of composite materials. The session will focus on various fiber reinforced polymer matrix composites, metal matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites, among others. Drs. Evans and Keeble will review fundamental principles of preparation of composite materials. In addition, they will:

  • Share recommended preparation routes, and advise on common preparation problems
  • Provide recommendations on microscopical techniques for routine and quantitative analysis
  • Demonstrate typical microstructures and discuss key techniques to ensure success
  • Include a live Questions and Answers session


The webinar is ideal for metallurgists, metallographers and sample preparation technicians, engineers, quality control and laboratory personnel in any metallography facility new to the area or looking for a refresher on composites preparation and analysis.

Registration is complimentary and a replay will also be available. Attendees will receive a Certificate of Participation after the Webinar.
