Hi Histonetters,
Good Friday to you all. Do you know if there is a “harder” paraffin  that may offer more support to the tissue while cutting? I currently use Paraplast Plus and love it, but now I am cutting some polymer material and there is some tearing and was thinking that maybe a different paraffin would help. I am trying to avoid embedding in plastic.
