Significance and Use
5.1 This procedure is suitable for manufacturing control and verifying that the product meets specifications. It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to ensure product quality and minimize production delays. The analytical performance data included may be used as a benchmark to determine whether similar X-ray spectrometers provide equivalent precision and accuracy, or whether the performance of a particular X-ray spectrometer has changed.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 10.
