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.

Like what you saw? This practice includes boiling the sample for 24 to hours in the solution above, and measures the materials performance quantitatively. Practice B, also known as the Streicher test, uses weight loss analysis to provide a quantitative measure of the materials performance.
Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion of Austenitic Stainless Steels
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 sensitization. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This specification covers the standard practices for detecting susceptibility to intergranular attack in austenitic stainless steels.
How do you select the right ASTM corrosion testing method for your material?
Please share this page: Intergranular corrosion occurs as a result of precipitation of nitridescarbidesand other intermetallic phasessuch as sigma phase, that occurs along 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.
Please specify the maximum allowable corrosion rate and any available data on the sensitizing heat treatment performed.
ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis
Due to the variance of attack in different materials, numerous methods Practices B-F are used to assess intergranular corrosion. The etch structure types used to classify the specimens are: A recent publication on intergranular corrosion.
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 a26213 application. 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.
This asfm is a brief summary of the referenced standard. If 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.
The test is generally performed for acceptance of materials, but not sufficient for rejection of materials. 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. What is your typical turnaround time? The bent samples are examined at low magnification, where the appearance of cracks or fissures indicate intergranular attack.
The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes. In many cases we can reduce that to as little as 24 hours more than the required testing time if you need fast results. Contact us now for pricing or a quote! Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
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. Duplicate samples from both sides of a sheet sample are evaluated to determine if carburization results in intergranular attack. Share on Tumblr Print. Because it can be run quickly for screening, we often run this test first. These practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: In SEM analysis, intergranular corrosion is clear by the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away.
See Appendix X1 for information regarding test selection. 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. The weight loss is calculated after each step, and reveals if the sample has been properly heat-treated.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
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.
Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around aa262-13 grain boundaries. For example, in highly oxidizing solutions, intergranular attack can occur due to intermetallic phases, while attack of carbides may occur somewhat less oxidizing solutions.
