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 chart below comes from the ASTM A standard for selection of the asttm test by alloy type:. See Appendix X1 for information regarding test selection. 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 weight loss is calculated after each step, and reveals if the sample has been properly heat-treated.

The Strauss test is a26-213 used to evaluate the heat-treatment of as-received material, the effectiveness of xstm additions of elements such as Nb and Ti, or the effectiveness of reducing carbon content to resist intergranular attack.
ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis
The test uses a visual inspection of the surface of the bent specimen to determine pass or fail. This practice includes boiling the sample for 24 to hours in the solution above, and measures the materials performance quantitatively.
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. 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.
The test is generally performed for acceptance of materials, but not sufficient for rejection of materials. For example, in highly oxidizing solutions, intergranular attack can occur due to intermetallic phases, while attack of carbides may occur somewhat less oxidizing solutions. Intergranular corrosion occurs as a result of precipitation of nitridescarbidesand other intermetallic phasessuch as sigma phase, that occurs along the grain boundaries.
In everyday applications, corrosion varies by materials and solutions. It depends on which Practice is selected, but typically ranges from to days for different tests. Contact us now for pricing or a quote!
The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes. 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 a262-31, numerous methods Practices B-F are used to assess intergranular corrosion. This specification covers the standard practices for detecting susceptibility to intergranular attack in austenitic ashm 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. These tests do not provide a basis for predicting resistance a262-1 forms of corrosion other than intergranular, such as general corrosion, pitting, or stress-corrosion cracking. The bent samples are examined at low magnification, where the appearance of cracks or fissures indicate intergranular attack.
The first and fastest step is the ASTM A Practice A, a rapid same-day screening method in Oxalic acid to a26213 the susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. Like what you saw? In SEM analysis, intergranular corrosion is clear by the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away.

Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around the ashm boundaries. Share on Z262-13 Print. These practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: 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.
Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion of Austenitic Stainless Steels
Some specific hazards statements are given in 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.
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.
The inch-pound equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate. Classification of the structure after A A262-31 A analysis will determine if the material is acceptable or if additional testing is required.
The Huey test asgm 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.
