Alloy identification by chemical color tests is a simple and versatile technique. Identification is based on the level of various components in the alloy. Sensitive and interference-free chemical color tests detect the alloying elements. A color develops due to the chemical reaction; generally, the brightness's intensity can be used to estimate the amount of alloying component present. Spot tests are more relaxed, faster, and cheaper than chemical analyses. The results are not as exact, but the concentrations can be estimated. This is usually sufficient for alloy identification, differentiation, and verification.
