Reagents for Fusion
Fluxing of the sample with high purity borates are sold under the brand name Spectromelt®. Spectromelt ® A-series is based on lithium borates, whereas Spectromelt ® B-series is based on sodium borate. Fusion with our borates gives a high homogeneity of the sample.
Interference of trace impurities in the sample can be reduced by using a high purity flux. All Spectromelt ® fluxes with their extensive specifications are analyzed for inorganic impurities and have a high batch-to-batch consistency. This reduces necessary adjustments of the instruments and increases the accuracy of the measurement.
The fused particles are spherical with a small particle size distribution and a higher bulk density. For the end-user the advantage is that the fused material is easier to handle and has a lower loss of ignition.
