Abstract

Aluminium metal of greater than 99.999% nominal purity, in the form of 0.1 mm and 1 mm thick foil and 1 mm diameter wire, has been certified for its sodium mass fraction. The certified value of the sodium mass fraction (less than 0.1 mg/kg) is based on 21 results from three laboratories using neutron activation analysis or atomic absorption spectrometry. The overall purity was estimated using spark source mass spectrometry and neutron activation analysis. The material is to be used as a reference material in neutron metrology.
