Cu-base-FP - analysis of copper alloys

‘Copper-base’ (Cu-base) is a term used to describe a range of alloys where Cu is the principal component. For different applications, the physical and chemical properties of Cu are adjusted by alloying with elements such as Sn, Zn, Ni Al, and Pb. Cu-based alloys are used in the manufacture of coinage, bells, a wide range of mechanical equipment and in electrical wiring.

During the production process fast chemical analysis is needed to minimize errors in production and to maximize production yield. Close tolerance specifications, combined with tight control of expensive alloy additions and tramp elements, demand the highest levels of accuracy and precision possible in analysis.
