In March 2018, Metalor became the first refiner accredited with the new ISO standard 17034 as “Producer of Reference Materials and Certified Reference Materials in the field of precious metals”. This accreditation recognises 20 years of experience in the production of reference materials.
ISO 17034 ACCREDITATION FOR PRECIOUS METALS REFERENCE MATERIALS
We offer two types of ISO 17034 Reference Materials:
• High-purity reference materials
• Custom-made reference materials
FOR CUPELLATION, ICP-OES
High-purity reference materials are high quality, pre-cut, fine gold, silver, platinum, or palladium reference materials for cupellation, ICP-OES, and potentiometry.
They can be used as proofs and inquartation materials. By offering these metals in different sizes, we allow laboratories to speed up their processes by selecting the most appropriate weight.
Please contact us for direct orders – we keep most of these high-purity materials in stock:
CUSTOM-MADE REFERENCE MATERIALS
Custom-made reference materials range from fine metals with specified impurities to complex alloys, and are produced to customer’s specifications.
Materials can be prepared as reference materials (RM) or Certified reference materials (CRM) depending on intended usage: calibration and re-calibration (SUS) standards, materials for inter-laboratory testing (round robin), control samples, metrology applications…
Reference materials are available in various shapes: disks, plates, ingots, wires…
Here is an example of such custom reference material : ISO 24018 RM (it can be used to validate analyses of ISO 24018 gold bars).

OUR NEW PRODUCTION FACILITY
To ensure the highest quality and full traceability of our (Certified) reference materials, we manufacture them in an independent department at our Swiss facility, with a dedicated team of professionals.
In 2020, we significantly increased the size of our production facility and further upgraded its state-of-the-art equipment.
