The analysis of refractory materials can be reduced to a simple, accurate procedure with the use of Spectroflux analytical fluxes.
Refractory materials such as ores, slags and minerals are often very resistant to acid attack, making the preparation of a sample solution difficult and time consuming. Selection of an effective method of disintegrating the sample matrix to a reproducible form is a prerequisite for speedy, precise and accurate analysis. Flux fusion is such a method.
Fusion with a molten alkali metal borate flux provides a rapid and simple means of dissolving chemically stable materials to yield glass-like solid solutions. This method eliminates any inhomogeneity of particle size, density or composition in the sample.
Samples of a wide variety of materials may thus be prepared in a simple manner for analysis by instrumental or chemical techniques.Analytical Techniques
