    Abstract

    THE SPECIMEN MATERIAL, COMBINED WITH THE PURPOSE OF EXAMINAtion, is decisive for the choice of preparation process/method. Two physical properties, hardness and ductility, are important in selecting a specific preparation method, but conditions such as coatings or composites also play an important role.
