Edge Rounding

Edge Rounding
Example: Due to a gap between resin and sample the edge
is rounded, Mag. 500 X.

Using a polishing surface with high resilience will result in material removal from both the sample surface and around the sides. The effect of this is edge rounding. With mounted specimens this effects can be seen, if the wear rate of the resin is higher than that of the sample material.
