Production of uncommercial reference copper alloys characterised by chemical composition and metallurgical features similar to those of ancient alloys

The production of 13 not commercially available reference Cu-based reference alloys characterised by chemical composition and metallurgical features similar to those of the ancient alloys is important for its possible use to test the innovative conservation materials and methods.

The chemical composition of the reference alloys is ascribed to the following material classes: Cu-Sn, Cu-Pb, Cu-Sn-Pb, Cu-Fe and Cu-Zn-Sn-Pb and covers the major part of the family of Cu-based alloys used in ancient times.

These materials can be used also as standard materials to optimise the analytical performances of portable or laboratory diagnostic equipments and at present are not commercially available.
