This standard is issued under the fixed designation A ; the number immediately following 1 These practices are under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee A01 on Steel, containing welds should be cut so that no more than 13 mm (1⁄2. Fast, high-quality ASTM A intergranular corrosion testing run by corrosion experts. ASTM has standardized the test procedure and the specifications are detailed in ASTM A standard (ASTM, ) and ASTM G standard (ASTM.

Because it can be run quickly for screening, we often run this test first. 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.
Share on Tumblr Print. The Huey test works well to analyze chromium depleted regions and intermetallic precipitates, such as sigma phase, and is also used for materials in strongly oxidizing environments such as nitric acid.
Intergranular corrosion occurs as a result of precipitation of nitridescarbidesand other intermetallic phasessuch as sigma phase, that occurs along the grain boundaries. The etch structure types used to classify the specimens astj Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. A22-13 materials with incorrect heat treatment enter service, they are liable to crack or fail by intergranular corrosion IGC much more rapidly than properly treated materials; ASTM A is a screening test to help find batches that are incorrectly processed.
What is your typical turnaround time? The test evaluates the resistance a26-213 extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes. For example, many low-carbon and stabilized stainless steels e. Practice B, also known as aztm Streicher test, uses weight loss analysis to provide a quantitative measure of the materials performance. Practice E, the Strauss test, is performed to assess attack associated with chromium-rich carbide formation; it does not detect susceptibility to sigma phase formation.

In many cases we can reduce that to as little as astj hours more than the required testing time if you need fast results. This practice includes boiling the sample for 24 to hours in the solution above, and measures the materials performance quantitatively.
The test is generally performed for acceptance of materials, but not sufficient for rejection of materials. Some specific hazards statements are given in The weight loss is calculated after each step, and reveals if the sample has been properly heat-treated.

These practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: 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 atm use, what to do if a test fails, and other corrosion consulting as needed.
Each ASTM A Practice specification includes a list of the grades of stainless steels and the acceptable etch structures for the specific alloys.
Historical Version s atsm view previous versions of standard Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard Translated Version s: Please specify the maximum allowable corrosion rate and any available data on the sensitizing heat treatment performed. These tests do not provide a basis for predicting resistance to forms of corrosion other than intergranular, such as general corrosion, pitting, or stress-corrosion cracking. Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around the grain boundaries.
The x262-13 below comes from the ASTM A standard for selection of the appropriate test by asrm type:. The first and fastest step is the ASTM A Practice A, a rapid same-day screening method in Oxalic acid to determine the susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. Practice A, the oxalic acid etch test is used as a rapid technique to screen samples of certain stainless steel grades to ensure they aetm not susceptible to intergranular attack sensitization.
The inch-pound equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate.
In everyday applications, corrosion varies by materials and solutions. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion of Austenitic Stainless Steels
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Based on your materials, application, and requirements, the other 4 methods provide specific focuses.
Classification of the structure after A Practice A analysis will determine if the material is acceptable or if additional testing is required. The oxalic acid test is commonly used before the Strauss test to determine if a sample is susceptible; samples that pass method A will generally show z262-13 corrosion rates in the Strauss test.
Please share this page: How do you select the right ASTM corrosion testing method for your material? Practice F, is a hour weight-loss based analysis that provides a quantitative measure of the materials performance, and is commonly used to analyze as-received stainless steels.
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. It depends on which Practice s262-13 selected, but typically ranges from to days for different tests. See Appendix X1 for information regarding test selection.
In SEM analysis, intergranular corrosion is clear by the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away. Methods for preparing the test specimens, rapid screening tests, apparatus setup and testing procedures, and calculations a2262-13 report contents are described for each a26213 practice.
Duplicate samples from both sides of a sheet sample are evaluated to determine if carburization results in intergranular attack. Due to the variance of attack in different materials, numerous methods Practices B-F are used to assess intergranular corrosion.
ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis
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. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. The Strauss test is commonly used to evaluate the heat-treatment of as-received material, the effectiveness of alloying additions of elements astk as Nb and Ti, or the effectiveness of reducing carbon content to resist intergranular attack.
These tests are often run as a qualification test to ensure each batch of stainless steel is properly prepared. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The test uses a visual inspection of the surface of the bent specimen to determine pass or fail.
