The Atomic Absorption Laboratory determines and quantifies the existence of metals in solid materials such as paper and polymers, metals and metal alloys and vegetable and mineral oils.
In compliance with the norms of the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT), the laboratory also prepares solid samples for classification (ABNT NBR 10.005 and ABNT NBR 10.006).
- Determination of metals in solid samples: aluminum, antimony, barium, bismuth, cadmium, calcium, lead, cobalt, copper, chromium, tin, iron, lithium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, gold, potassium, silver, silicon, sodium, titanium, vanadium and zinc*;
- Sample preparation for leaching or solubilization (ABNT NBR 10.005 and ABNT NBR 10.006);
* Some of the tests are accredited by the General Coordination of Accreditation of Inmetro (Cgcre). The complete scope of the accredited tests can be found at the link www.inmetro.gov.br/laboratorios/rble.
