This product has a refractive index (nD@ 25° C) of 1.539 an Abbe V dispersion of 45 making it optically similar to Canada Balsam and therefore, ideal for the mounting of many biological specimens but without the long drying time of Canada Balsam.
The Quick-Stick™ family of products, made by Cargille, are available in six different refractive index products. All are specially formulated for their high optical quality and were originally designed for microscope slide mounting and other optical coupling applications. The Quick-Stick products are formulated into easy-to-use "stick" like system.
The Quick-Stick products can be applied to a slide on a hot plate. As soon as the specimen and cover glass are positioned and the slide is cooled, there is a permanent prepared slide that can be reversed by reheating, for example if wants to retrieve a particle for further analysis, such as by EDS of FT/IR.
