TITANIUM AND TITANIUM ALLOYS

Objective



Titanium and its alloys (mainly TiAl6V4) are increasingly used in, respectively, chemical industry and aerospace applications. The industrial analytical laboratories often use techniques like emission spectrometry (for unalloyed Ti) or X-ray fluorescence (for alloys). These techniques require standards, but the preparation of homogeneous standards is difficult.
The BCR has therefore undertaken the production of reference materials (in the form of disks) through powder metallurgy.

RESULTS

Two reference materials have been certified:
CRM 89: Ti alloy with 6% Al and 4% V
CRM 90: unalloyed Ti with 300-750 mg/kg of Al, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Nb, Ni, Si, Sn,V, W and Zr and approx. 10 mg/kg B.
Certification report: EUR 14056 (1992)
