LHS-2E is an engineering grade version of our Lunar Highlands Simulant that is geared toward bulk orders. This simulant is perfect for filling regolith bins, rover testing, and any usage with the priority of utilizing the geotechnical characteristics of Lunar Highlands regolith. It is geotechnically equivalent to our Lunar Highlands Simulant with minor chemical fidelity differences. There is no significant change to texture, color, or mechanical properties.
The core difference between LHS-2E and LHS-1E is their particle size range. LHS-2E has a particle size range upper limit of 2mm, whereas LHS-1E has an upper limit of 1mm. They are identical mineralogically and chemically otherwise.
This simulant is made more affordable due to a simplified mixture of minerals but is still over 99% identical to LHS-2!
