Stevensville, Michigan, April 28, 2020 – Alpha Resources LLC has produced their first Ferrochrome Certified Reference Material, AR 308, for Carbon and Sulfur.
 
“Alpha Resources has not previously offered any Ferrochrome materials as a CRM; being our first, this is a notably high carbon which is not typically presented in other CRMs,” notes Kent Dyer, Chief Chemist at Alpha Resources.
 
Additional information about this new CRM and all Alpha CRMs may be found on the website under Reference Materials.
  

Alpha Resources is closely monitoring events associated with the current COVID-19 emergency. We are also taking steps to ensure that our valued supply chain partners can continue to operate both safely and within the applicable federal, state, and local governmental regulations.
