MAXXIFLUX - Lithium fluxes fusion for X Ray Analysis - Mining - Minerals

The fusion is the dissolution on the sample of flux. The oxides are easily dissolved in Lithium borates. The Lithium Tetraborate (Li₂B₄O₇ -m.p. 920° C ), by having and acid character, react better with basic oxides, as for example the CaO. Therefore, the Lithium Metaborate (LiBO₂ – m.p. 850°C), which has basic character reacts easily with acid oxides, for example:SiO₂. The MAXXIFlux has a high purity level and analytical accuracy, high density, and can be pre-fused or not.
