Product Improvement

 

Improving the products provided by Alcoa Spectrochemical Standards is an ongoing effort; we are currently focusing on alloys that tend to form a coarse chrome intermetallic species.  Formation of this intermetallic causes the between burn consistency to deteriorate particularly for Cr, Fe, Mn, and Ti leading to diminished analysis consistency for these elements. 

 

  • SQ11-The concentration levels of SQ11 have been slightly modified to reduce the formation of these course chrome intermettalics.

 

  • SS319-The concentration levels of SS319 have been slightly modified to reduce the formation of course chrome and Bi- Sr intermetallics. 

 

New Specialty Standard Thickness 

 

All new specialty standards will be produced with a thickness of 1.5" (38mm). A half ingot will consist of 10-1.5" thick sections and a whole ingot will consist of 20-1.5" thick sections. This will increase the amount of useable material for our customers.

 

Typically, when the standard becomes too thin to safely machine, it must be properly disposed. By making the sections larger, there is less scrap resulting in the gain of usable material.

 

Note:  There will be an additional charge for all specialty standards produced in 1" thick sections.

 

 

 

ISO 9001:2008 Accreditation Renewed 

In May 2014, the SCS quality management system was reassessed to ISO 9001:2008 and renewed for another 3 years. The scope of our ISO 9001:2008 accreditation is for the manufacture and supply of spectrochemical standards’. Click here to view our quality accreditations.
