Replication system

The Most Versatile 3D Replicating System

Replication system facts

  • Highly accurate
  • Non-destructive
  • Flexible
  • Maximum user friendliness
  • Precise measurements

RepliSet, RepliFix, and Transcopy replica foil is a complete system for replicating materials. It is designed to transfer the structure of a solid surface to a flexible, highly accurate, and stable replica. The result is an exact 3D copy of the surface, allowing microscopic examination and precise measurements. Our replicating system is accepted for ASTM standard E 1351 “Standard Practice for Production and Evaluation of Field Metallographic Replicas.”


High Resolution and Form Stability

The Replication system produces replicas that are dimensionally correct and have an ultrafine detail reproduction as well as a plane back. RepliSet can replicate details with dimensions less than 0.1 micron over the whole replica surface, which can be of any size or shape. RepliSet has no shrinkage and can thus be used for highly accurate metrological measurements.


The compounds used in RepliSet and RepliFix are non-flammable, solvent-free, and cleared for all normal modes of transportation, including air.

Easy to use

With the easy-to-operate dispensing gun, perfect replicas can be produced the first time without the need for extensive operator experience. This allows the user to return to the lab with high quality replicas.

Used in these industries:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Electronics
  • Manufacturing
  • Education & Research


  • RepliSet fast curing

    Fast Curing

    Fluid compound with a working life of five minutes and a curing time of 18 minutes at 25° C (77° F)

  • RepliSet tear strength flexibility

    High Tear Strength and Flexibility

    Replicas can easily be removed from moderately reentrant geometry, without damage or distortion. Upon release, the material returns to its original shape.

  • RepliSet suitable

    Suitable in All Conditions

    Being water-repellent, RepliSet can provide replicas of humid surfaces and cure on surfaces with temperatures ranging from –10° C to +180° C.

  • RepliSet examination options

    Examination Options

    All replicas are suitable for 3D examination by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and non-contact metrological methods, such as interferometry, laser scanning, and shadowgraph projection.

  • RepliSet replicas

    Replicas of any size and shape

    Flexible high strength replicas can be taken from inaccessible surfaces, and can be removed from moderately re-entrant geometry

  • RepliSet high res form stability

    High Resolution and Form Stability

    High resolution down to 0.1 micron and virtually no shrinkage

  • RepliSet compatible

    Highly Compatible

    The materials are designed specifically to be compatible with stainless steels and other engineering alloys and do not compromise future corrosion behavior after replication. The compounds are approved for use on stainless steel in nuclear plants.

    RepliSet RepliSet
    Replication system for non-destructive testing of a microstructure or a 3D structure. Fast curing two-part silicon rubber compound for flexible high resolution 3D replicas. For the 50 ml system, the hand-operated dispensing gun and the static mixing nozzles are used in combination with the 50 ml cartridges. For the 265 ml system, the hand-operated dispensing gun and the static mixing nozzles are used in combination with the 265 ml cartridges.


    RepliFix RepliFix-2
    For low temperature conditions or where rapid results are required A working life of two to three minutes and a curing time of ten minutes at 25° C (77° F)

    For high temperature conditions or for taking replicas of complicated geometry or large areas A working life of 20 minutes and a curing time of 60 minutes at 25° C (77° F)
  • Transcopy Replica Foil

    Transcopy Replica Foil

    For making replicas of polished and etched surfaces. Self-adhesive reflective Transcopy replica foil creates a permanent replication of microstructures, cracks, and defects for future analysis in the laboratory.
