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.

The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes. The etch structure types used to classify the specimens are: Contact us now a22-13 pricing or a quote!

The test is generally performed for acceptance of materials, but not sufficient for rejection of materials. Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around the grain boundaries.

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. Classification of the structure after A Practice A analysis will determine if the material is acceptable or if additional testing is required.

See Appendix X1 for information regarding test selection. Practice A, the oxalic acid etch test is used as a rapid technique to asstm samples of certain stainless steel grades ast ensure they are not susceptible to intergranular attack sensitization.

In SEM analysis, intergranular corrosion is clear by the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away. 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 oxalic acid test is commonly used before the Strauss test asgm determine if a sample is susceptible; samples that pass method A will generally show low corrosion rates in the Strauss test.

ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed a26-213 are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. What is your typical turnaround time? Practice B, also known as the Streicher test, uses weight loss analysis to provide a quantitative measure of the materials performance.

For example, in highly oxidizing solutions, intergranular attack can occur due to intermetallic phases, while attack of carbides may occur somewhat less oxidizing solutions. The first and fastest step is the ASTM A Practice A, a rapid same-day screening a2621-3 in Oxalic acid to determine the susceptibility to intergranular corrosion.

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. Methods for preparing the test specimens, rapid screening tests, apparatus setup and testing procedures, and calculations and report contents are described for each a262-3 practice.

A recent publication on intergranular corrosion. The bent samples are examined at low magnification, where the appearance of cracks or fissures indicate intergranular attack. Please share this page: 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. These practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: The Wstm 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.

G2MT Labs is aastm 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.

Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion of Austenitic Stainless Steels

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. Duplicate samples from both sides of a sheet sample are evaluated to determine if carburization results in intergranular attack.

In everyday applications, corrosion varies by materials and solutions.
