Produced in general accordance with the principles of ISO 17034 and ISO Guide 35, the Multi Test Verification Material (MTVM) Bitumen provides certified values for multiple test methods and has been characterised using a network of competent laboratories to provide international traceability. It is a highly cost effective solution to help meet verification requirements for audited laboratories and those which comply with ISO 17025.

Multi Test Verification Materials (MTVMs) allow routine monitoring of instrument performance and are also particularly helpful in training personnel on new equipment and test methods. The purchase of MTVMs is recommended with new instrumentation to assist with installation and commissioning.

Incorrect determination of a result can have far reaching financial and safety implications. The growing use of automated instrumentation increases the possibility that incorrect results may go undetected and in addition the early indication of bias is a useful warning to minimise production ‘giveaway’.

Seta MTVMs are unique because, unlike most other certified reference material that are only suitable for validating a specific parameter/value, Seta MTVMs enable a user to validate different tests and instrumentation using the same sample material.

Certification: the Multi Test Verification Material (MTVM) Bitumen is supplied with a certificate of measurement which gives the certified value for each test method covered by the material.

Suitable for use with a number of Seta instruments including the Setamatic Penetrometer (17500-0) and the Seta Universal Penetrometer (17190-3).
