Acrytol is a rapid-drying mounting medium which enables slides to be screened immediately. It has a low viscosity, allowing the medium to flow easily.
Acrytol contains an antioxidant to inhibit stain fading and prevent the formulation of annual rings. A thin coating of Acrytol is all that is needed to adhere a coverglass to a microscope slide.
It is soluble in xylene, toluene and most xylene substitutes.
