190-2020-1 Chemical Analysis of Aluminum Alloy Price: $270.00


Participants receive two solid discs, made from either two different aluminum grades or two different heats of the same grade and approximately 35mm in diameter and 8 mm thick. The samples provided are homogeneity tested.
 
Wet or instrument analysis may be performed for all elements. A different method may be used for each element. While CTS does not specify a particular method, some examples of methods that could be used include: ASTM E34, ASTM E1251, and ISO 3980.
 
Laboratories may report the percentages of up to 8 specified elements per sample. Basic elements to be determined by laboratories include: Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Aluminum (Al), Silicon (Si), Manganese (Mn), and Magnesium (Mg).
 
Other elements such as Chromium (Cr), Titanium (Ti), and  Zinc (Zn)  vary from cycle to cycle depending on the grades used.
