The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes.
Similar to the Streicher test, the Huey test method uses a nitric acid solution and subjects the specimen to five hour boiling intervals. Awtm Oxalic Acid test is also only applicable to corrosion associated with chromium carbide precipitates and is only useful for specific material grades. The inch-pound ast, are in parentheses and may be approximate.
Because it can be run quickly for screening, we often run this test first.
Each ASTM A Practice specification includes a list of the grades practicw stainless steels and the acceptable etch structures for the specific alloys. Strauss test specimens are boiled in a Copper Sulfate – Sulfuric Acid mixture for 15 hours. Intergranular cracking or crazing is evidence of susceptibility. A recent publication on intergranular corrosion.
Edges shall be rounded and a fine final polish is praftice at all surface exclude the weld cap and root area. Learn more about our laboratories – where they are located; the unique capabilities they have and how they can help you practide your technical and commercial challenges. This test is used exclusively to determine corrosion in areas high in chromium carbide formations, and is not as effective for intergranular attack caused by other means.
ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. A bend test followed by a visual or micro-examination are used to determine “Pass” or “Fail” of test specimens. How do you select the right ASTM corrosion testing method for your material? This method is preferable for chromium depletions and corrosion in intermetallic phases.
This practice includes boiling the sample for 24 to hours in the solution above, and measures the materials performance quantitatively.
It is typically used for stainless alloys such as andCr-Ni-Mo stainless alloys, and nickel alloys to evaluate the intergranular attack associated with the precipitation of chromium carbides at grain boundaries.
The corrosion test has the advantage of being relatively rapid, requiring 24 hours plus sample preparation time.
Although this test method uses some similar equipment, this method should not be confused with Test Method G Our laboratory is well organized, adequately equipped, and have competent staff who are trained to conduct these tests. Corrosion is measured by a weight loss that is converted to a corrosion rate. To understand intergranular corrosion testing or intergranular attack commonly abbreviated as IGC or IGAit is important to understand what causes the process to occur.
In many cases we can reduce that to as little as 24 hours more than the required testing time if you need pdactice results.
ASTM A Testing: An Overview of Intergranular Corrosion | Element
Methods for preparing the test specimens, rapid screening tests, apparatus setup and testing procedures, and calculations and report contents are described for each testing practice. Specimen surface before soaking in boiling Ferric Sulfate-Sulfuric Acid solution. The ASTM A tests can determine if the proper heat treatment was performed or if the alloys are in danger of intergranular corrosion occurring in use. After exposure in the boiling solution, the specimen is bent. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
G2MT Labs is one of the few labs to offer all five ASTM A corrosion testing practices, as well as the expertise to help you determine which tests to use, what to do if a test fails, and other corrosion consulting as needed. What is your typical turnaround time?
