The CEMOXI standards set is comprised of 9 multi element synthetic cement standards (including pure gypsum) supplied as powders to be prepared as fused beads. Standards are supplied as 10g powders in air tight plastic bottles, packed under nitrogen. The full set is housed in an aluminium carrying case containing the standards, user information and concentrations on CD ROM.
Fused beads are prepared using recipes provided and preprogrammed on the Eagon 2 or using one’s own. Calibrations are created using provided templates in SuperQ which can be adapted and/or extended.
Standards are made from pure chemicals, pre-conditioned, weighed, ground and then ignited at 10500C before packaging under nitrogen. Detailed instructions on the
use and handling of the CEMOXI standards are included with the application package. The included compounds and analytical ranges are shown below:
