Manufacturing and Certification of Reference Materials for the Mass Fraction of Boron in Silumin

  • 174 Accesses


In this research, we set out to provide metrological support to methods used for determination of the content of boron in silumin. In particular, we present a technology for the synthesis and characterisation of reference materials for the composition of silumin. To this end, a number of research methods were applied, including X-ray phase analysis, atomic emission spectral analysis with arc excitation, gravimetry and mass spectral analysis. As a result, the developed set of reference materials has been included into the State register and the Federal information fund.


  • Set of CRMs for the mass fraction of boron in silumin
  • Synthesis
  • Estimation of metrological characteristics
  • Homogeneity
