We supply a range of x-ray films used for spill protection and plastic sample cups.
Thin-Film Sample Support Windows are available in Continuous Rolls, Pre-Perforated Rolls and Pre-Cut Circles interleaved with lint-free tissue carriers, in addition to SpectroMembrane® Thin-Film Sample Support Window Carrier Frames.
Fabrication and storage of all thin-films is performed under environmentally controlled conditions and immediately individually shrink-wrapped in clear plastic to preserve the original integrity. These extra precautionary measures are necessary to avoid the potential possibility of inadvertently introducing trace levels of contaminates that may affect x-ray data.
Pre-Perforated Thin-Film Rolls
Thin-film rolls pre-perforated at 3” lengths are also available for analysts with a preference to continuous rolls and would like the convenience of dispensing pre-cut sections. Simply detach three square inch sections from the bulk roll at the perforations as required. Each roll is 300’ in length by 3” wide. A single pre-perforated roll serves to prepare 1200 samples at 3 inch square per sample.
SpectroMembrane® Thin-Film Sample Support Window Frames
SpectroMembrane® Thin-Film Sample Support Carrier Frames consist of a thin-film sample support substance attached to a frame that serves as a carrier. In affixing a thin-film substance to an XRF Sample Cup, the thin-film material is not directly handled and a contamination possibility is completely eliminated. Nearing or at the completion of attachment, the thin-film automatically detaches from the carrier frame leaving a taut wrinkle-free sample support window.
SpectroFilm® Self-Sticking Safety XRF Secondary Film
• Costly damage to x-ray tube windows
• Costly damage to x-ray detector windows
• Costly damage to electronics
• Costly contamination issues
• Costly clean ups
SpectroFilm® offers the analyst a practical means to protect the x-ray tube and detector windows and related electronics from exposure to accidental sample material spillage. This is easily accomplished by affixing a self-sticking SpectroFilm® Safety Secondary Window between the stage separating the lower electronics compartment and upper sample chamber.
