X-RAY FLUORESCENCE

 

Bruker S4 Explorer

XRF is a non-destructive elemental analytical technique for the quantitative and qualitative determination of solids and liquids.  Elements (> F) are excited by X-rays.  Secondary X-rays are released from the sample as a result of their return to the ground state.  The X-rays are element specific and their intrensities are related with the concentration.  Standardless calibration is possible using adapted software.

Typical applications

  • Qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis of the filler material in paint, plastics, rubber.
  • Qualitative analysis of unknown residues.
  • Qualitative and quantitative elemental composition of cosmetics, coatings, pigments, inks
