The analysis of nonmetallics by X-ray fluorescence methods has been widely accepted as a standard method for routine control. As new materials are studied and appropriate methods developed, these are added to the list of control procedures. Each of these materials presents different types of problems to the analyst, and must be investigated with this in mind. One problem common to almost all nonmetallics is the mineralogical differences and origin of raw materials. The materials of the cement industry have been studied primarily to determine the influence of the raw materials and their origin. The results of this study and their relation to analytical performance will be presented.
