In December we acquired MBH Analytical located in the UK which dramatically increased enhanced the breath of our reference material portfolio. MBH adds a significant amount of custom compositions for steels, cast irons, zinc, copper, magnesium, tin and lead alloys to our combined product lines.
Our latest certified reference materials include some common and some unusual alloys to help your lab enhance its quantitative analysis capabilities. These reference materials are perfect for extending the range of your calibration curves, using as verification samples or for use as type standards . They are also great for positive material identification applications.
Working with zirconium alloys ? This group of alloys are used in critical applications in the chemical processing and nuclear industries. These alloys can be difficult to QC or grade match for Positive Material Identification (PMI) due to the lack of Certified Reference Materials.
We have addressed this need with the introduction of the first certified reference materials for zirconium alloys, IARM Zr702-18 and IARM ZR705-18. These reference materials cover the two main commercially available Zirconium alloys, Zircadyne® 702 and Zircadyne® 705.
ARMI introduces new certified reference materials for Nickel alloys PE16, 617, 909, C-276 and Kovar®.
The production of metal alloy parts is increasing being done using additive manufacturing (3D printing) processes. 3D metal printers use a metal alloy powder that is fused by a laser in depositional layers 30-50µm thick. The part is thus progressively built up layer by layer until the desired form is completed. This technology is now commonly being applied to the production of mission critical components in the aerospace medical industries. Verifying the quality of the powder material is an important quality control step in the process. Our certified reference materials can assist with that process.
In July LGC ARMI received its official accreditation to ISO 17034 for reference material production and ISO 17043 for proficiency testing. We are very proud of this achievement as these accreditations represent the gold standard in reference material production and proficiency testing.
ARMI introduces two new certified reference materials for nickel alloys. IARM-Ni214-18 is a Haynes® 214® alloy and IARM-NiB3-18, a Hastelloy® B3® alloy.
