A reference material is a material or substance of sufficient homogeneity in which one or more property values are specified with sufficient precision that it can be used for the calibration of measuring instruments, the assessment of measurement procedures or the assignment of substance values.

Reference materials are indispensable when it comes to ensuring the accuracy and reliability of measurement results.

We develop and certify reference materials to ensure correct and reliable measurement results.

The BAM Webshop provides access to over 400 materials from various areas such as iron/steel, environment, food, polymers and many more.
