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.

A recent publication on intergranular corrosion. Each ASTM A Practice specification includes a list of the grades of stainless steels and the acceptable etch structures for the specific alloys. In SEM analysis, intergranular corrosion is clear by the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away.
The first and asttm step is the ASTM A Practice A, a rapid same-day screening method in Oxalic acid to determine the susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. The etch structure types used to classify the specimens are: Contact us now for pricing or a quote! Please specify the maximum allowable corrosion rate and any available data on the sensitizing heat treatment performed.
The test uses a visual inspection of the surface of the bent specimen to determine pass or fail. Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around the grain boundaries.

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 weight loss is calculated after each step, and reveals if the sample has been properly heat-treated. These tests are often run as a qualification test to ensure each batch of stainless steel is properly prepared. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. 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. In everyday applications, corrosion varies by materials and solutions. 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.
ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis
These practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: The Strauss test is commonly used to evaluate the heat-treatment of as-received material, the effectiveness of alloying additions of elements such as Nb and Ti, or the effectiveness of reducing carbon content to resist intergranular attack. Classification of the structure after A Practice A analysis will determine if the material is acceptable or if additional testing is required. In many cases we axtm reduce that to as little as 24 hours more than the required testing time if you need fast results.
ASTM does not aztm any warranty express or implied or make any representation that atsm contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Please share this page: 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. Referenced Documents purchase a2262-13 The documents listed below a262-31 referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
This specification covers the standard practices for detecting susceptibility to intergranular attack in austenitic stainless steels. It depends on which Practice is selected, but typically ranges from to days for different tests. The inch-pound equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate.
It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Like what you saw?
The bent samples are examined at low magnification, where the appearance of cracks or fissures indicate intergranular attack. 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.
These tests do not provide a basis for predicting resistance to forms of corrosion other than intergranular, such as general corrosion, q262-13, or stress-corrosion cracking.
Methods for preparing the test specimens, rapid screening tests, apparatus setup and testing procedures, and calculations and report contents a2662-13 described for each testing practice. What is your typical turnaround time? Because it can be run quickly for screening, we often run this test first. The chart below comes from the Asrm A standard for selection of the appropriate test by alloy type:. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes.
How do you select the right ASTM corrosion testing method for your material?
Share on Tumblr Print. The Huey test works well to analyze chromium asstm regions and intermetallic precipitates, such as sigma phase, and is also used for materials in strongly oxidizing environments such as nitric acid.
The oxalic acid test is commonly used before the Strauss test to determine if a sample is z262-13 samples that pass method A will generally show low corrosion rates in the Strauss test. Due to the variance of attack in different materials, numerous methods Practices B-F are used to assess intergranular corrosion.
Practice B, also known as the Streicher test, uses weight loss analysis to provide a quantitative measure of the materials performance. This practice includes boiling the sample for 24 to hours in the solution above, and measures the materials performance quantitatively. Practice A, the oxalic acid etch test is used as a rapid technique to screen samples of certain stainless steel grades to ensure they are not susceptible to intergranular attack aa262-13.
For example, many low-carbon and stabilized stainless steels e. Some specific hazards statements are given in Duplicate samples from both sides of a sheet sample are evaluated to determine if carburization results in intergranular attack.
