Our team has been hard at work and we are excited to add five new copper CRMs to our product portfolio. Copper can be alloyed with a wide range of elements enabling highly specific functions and applications. The large compositional range of copper alloys means that high-quality, matrix-matched reference materials are needed for proper analysis of each alloy.
Sulfur is nearly always found in petroleum products and feedstocks.1 It is usually removed during crude oil processing as it is considered an undesirable contaminant that leads to the formation of harmful pollutants such as sulfur oxides.
The new ARMI | MBH combined catalog offers the largest portfolio of metal alloy reference materials of any provider in the industry.
Developing new reference materials can be a time consuming process often requiring several years to complete. This means that reference material development typically lags well behind the introduction new metal alloys created to meet the needs of increasingly demanding industrial applications. This disparity creates a problem for chemists working with analytical methods such as XRF, ICP and OE, as these are comparative techniques and require reference materials to calibrate and validate.
LGC ARMI now has new analytical capabilities including ICP-OES, ICP-MS and WDXRF in our Manchester, NH facility. Our ISO 17025 laboratory is also equipped with the new ColdBlock rapid digestion system as well as other conventional sample preparation equipment.
