FP5

The certification of arsenic, lead, tin and zinc (mass fractions) in five copper alloys. BCR-691

Funded under: FP5-GROWTH

Abstract

This report describes the preparation, homogeneity and stability studies, and the subsequent certification of bronze alloys representative of ancient bronze compositions for their As, Pb, Sn, Zn mass fraction. The reference materials (BCR 691) are available as a set of five polished discs diameter 35 mm, thickness 2 mm. The certified mass fractions together with uncertainties are given in the table below. The associated uncertainties are calculated from the combined uncertainties Uc multiplied by a coverage factor (k = 2).
