Abstract : Six random samples of maraging steel were analyzed for manganese, chromium, molybdenum, nickel, copper, titanium, aluminum and cobalt for use as secondary standards for instrumental analysis. Analyses were made for these elements in solution by both optical and X-ray emission techniques as well as by the usual wet chemical methods. The range of the elements in the six samples was adequate except for nickel. By the use of these standards and others previously available, a direct reading optical emission spectrometer was calibrated for both maraging and stainless steels. (Author)
