The mining industry can be considered the basis of several other segments because it is responsible for extracting and processing metals and materials that are essential for the generation of various materials that are important for human survival.
Before extraction, there is an important step performed by Geology professionals, which consists of finding the source minerals of the elements of interest, as well as quantifying a reserve and evaluating the feasibility of extraction and processing.
All the above-mentioned steps require chemical analysis to be performed reliably and accurately. Certified reference materials are used to calibrate instruments and as analytical quality control tools.
The world’s constant demand for materials, combined with the evolution of humanity that continuously updates its technologies and discoveries, directly generates the need to develop new certified reference materials so that research, production, and analysis processes are possible.
Over the years, ITAK has been following this industry, being up to date with market demands, and has constantly innovated its product portfolio.
