CERTIFICATE OF REFERENCE MATERIAL N 1744-103

IPT 501
Low Alloy Steel (AISI 4130H)
This reference material was certified by the consensus of a network of expert laboratories using different methodologies, and can be used for calibration, assessment of precision and trueness and, to demonstrate traceability of results in chemical analysis by instrumental methods. This material is an alloy steel AISI 4130H similar to designations SAE J407C e ASTM A204. This material is in the disk form with approximately 36 mm of diameter and 20 mm of thickness. Due to possible segregation, a central portion of the disk of approximately 8 mm of diameter, should be avoided when measuring by optical emission spectrometry. Certified Values

Uncertainties The expanded uncertainties of the certified values were estimated by the combination, according to ISO Guide 35:2006, of uncertainties of characterization, obtained experimentally from the interlaboratory certification program data, with contributions of homogeneity and, where relevant, with contributions of stability of material, both estimated at IPT. The coverage factor used is approximately 2, providing a confidence level of 95%. Traceability The certified values of the properties o fthis material were obtained by means of measurements performed at IPT and by a network of collaborating laboratories, using one or more methods for each property studied. These methods were verified using reference materials with certified values and standards with values traceable to the International System of Units (SI) through NIST and other qualified producers. The measuring instruments were calibrated with standards traceable to SI through Inmetro and the Brazilian Calibration Network (RBC). Mass of samples The mass of sample required for the proper realization of the determinations depends on the particular methodology, levels of analytes, and other factors. It is recommended using the masses established in the most current editions of recognized standard methods. However, to guarantee the validity of all the certified values stated herein and their respective uncertainties, should not be employed samples with masses less than 100 mg. This limit was estimated from the sample masses used in the study of homogeneity of this material. Handling and storage Handling: The discs should have the surface properly prepared before the determinations. Follow the guidelines of your specific test method or standard protocol. After the surface treatment, keep the disks in a clean and dry place, and avoid touching the surface employed for analysis. Storage: This material should be stored in their original packaging, in dry place at room temperature. The ideal relative humidity for storage is under 60% RH. Technical Notes Analyses for certification of this material were accomplished using disk samples and also chips samples taken from representative parts of the the disks. Additional Information The raw material for the preparation of this certified reference material was provided by Aos Villares S. A. (Usina Anhangera), Mogi das Cruzes, Brazil. The certification of this material was coordinated by Maria Isabel Lima Craveiro. Collaborating Laboratories
