Introduction



BRAMMER STANDARD COMPANY, INC. produces and distributes over 10,000 chemical and spectrochemical analytical reference materials from producers around the world. Brammer started operation in 1968 with the offering of 7 carbon and low alloy steel discs. Brammer now produces over 250 Reference Materials using 6 to 15 cooperating laboratories in an interlaboratory testing program. Starting in 1985, all certificates of analysis include the mean average chemical analysis from each participating laboratory. Beginning in 1990, all certificates include information on the CRMs used to validate the analysis.

NIST CRMs are used for traceability information when they are available for the particular CRM testing. Classical "wet" methods of chemical analysis are used in addition to plasma and atomic absorption instruments during interlaboratory testing. The CRMs are also checked by optical emission and XRF spectrometers for compatibility with other RMs and CRMs. All "BS" CRMs and RMs are tested for homogeneity using ASTM E 826-2008, "Standard Practice for Testing Homogeneity of a metal lot or batch in solid form by arc=spark atomic emission spectroscopy."

THIS WEBSITE is organized by grouping similar materials together. The listed analysis of our materials is in percent concentration by weight unless otherwise noted. Many of the groups of materials are shown with the term "typical analysis". That phrase means that the analysis shown is the "target" analysis of the producer. The actual analysis of the material will be similar to the "typical analysis" but will not duplicate the catalog data. If the term "typical analysis" is not listed, then the analysis of the material will be the same as listed in this catalog. Also remember to use the Index along with the Online Catalog to navigate within this site. You may see a few samples with a line drawn through them. This indicates the material is suspended, there are no known date for return to availability for any suspended items.

Paperwork accompanies all material to show chemical content. In all cases, you should refer to the analysis on the paperwork - not the analysis listed in this catalog. Every effort was made to place the correct analytical data in this catalog; however, we do not accept responsibility for any inaccuracies in material not produced by Brammer Standard. We reserve the right to discontinue any standard, to limit availability, and to modify prices at any time. The analytical reference materials listed in this catalog are identified as Certified Reference Materials (CRM), Reference Materials (RM), and Setting-Up Samples (SUS). The definitions for CRM and RM as listed in the International Organization for Standardization's ISO Guide 30:1992, "Terms and definitions used in connection with reference materials" are listed below.




Definitions



CERTIFIED REFERENCE MATERIAL (CRM): Reference material, accompanied by a certificate, one or more of whose property values are certified by a procedure which establishes its traceability to an accurate realization of the unit in which the property values are expressed, and for which each certified value is accompanied by an uncertainty at a stated level of confidence. The CRMs are certified by a recognized certifying organization using approved certification procedures as instructed in ISO Guide 35:1989 "Certification of reference materials - General and statistical principles." The organization is usually a function of a federal government or recognized by a federal government or an accreditation organization. A CRM is the highest level to which an analytical reference material can be elevated because it is directly traceable to SI units and because of the attributed confidence in the company or organization which produced the material. Materials produced by national metrological laboratories (NML) such as NIST and ECRM are automatically CRM by default authority, it should be noted that often these NML certificates do not comply with modern expectations, but they remain CRM by default authority.

REFERENCE MATERIAL (RM): A material substance one or more of whose property values are sufficiently homogeneous and well established to be used for the calibration of an apparatus, the assessment of a measurement method, or for assigning values to materials. The RMs usually have been through interlaboratory testing using many analysts and supplied with a certificate of analysis but do not strictly follow the procedures of certification as indicated in ISO Guide 35:1989.

SETTING-UP SAMPLES (SUS): Materials which have an uncertified analysis to be used as a guide. These materials are assigned values for each element during calibration of the instrument with CRMs and RMs. These assigned values are used for day-to-day or shift-to-shift adjustment of the instrument. This process is often called "drift correction", "standardization of the calibration", or "re-standardization". Users are advised to obtain a reasonably long term supply of each SUS to avoid having to recalibrate the instrument when the current SUS supply is exhausted.




Terms and Conditions



REGULAR TERMS: for new international customers we will require completed forms and prepayment. For new domestic customers we will require completed forms and trade references. All of our dispatches are EXW, meaning the customer is responsible for freight and any taxes or duties. We do have our own insurance policy that covers all incoming and outgoing shipments. There is no insurance cost added to any of our shipments.

PAYMENT METHOD: we accept credit cards, cchecks drawn on a USA bank or wire transfers.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES WITHIN THE CRITICAL PERIOD: return intentions must be communicated clearly and without delay. For direct sales the critical period is 30 days after we dispatch, for distributors 45 days. Depending on the nature of the return we may or may not pay the return freight. All returned material must firstly be inspected before any value is assigned. Value of 100% will be assigned if the sample and certificate are received in original condition, unless the purchase was charged - then a 5% surcharge applies when crediting the return. Restocking fees will apply if the certificate is missing, sample or certificate is damaged or otherwise altered.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES OUTSIDE THE CRITICAL PERIOD: We reserve the right to handle all returns outside of the critical period without any limitations.

CANCELLATIONS: most of our suppliers will not allow cancellations or bulk returns, so its best to be 100% sure of your requirements before ordering. Cancellations, while sometimes possible, should generally not be expected to be possible.
