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 is generally performed for acceptance of materials, but not sufficient for rejection of materials. Duplicate samples from both sides of a sheet sample are evaluated to determine if carburization results in intergranular attack. 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.
Each ASTM Satm Practice specification includes a list of the grades of stainless steels and the acceptable etch structures for the specific alloys. Because it can be run quickly for screening, we often run this test first. Contact us now for pricing or a quote! Please share this page: The Strauss test is commonly used asstm 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.
The inch-pound equivalents are in parentheses and may be approximate. In SEM analysis, intergranular corrosion is clear by the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the qstm. Intergranular corrosion occurs as a result of precipitation of nitridescarbidesand other intermetallic phasessuch as sigma phase, that occurs along the grain boundaries.
Share on Tumblr Print. Practice E, the Strauss test, is performed to assess attack associated with chromium-rich carbide formation; it does not detect susceptibility a26-13 sigma phase formation.
The etch structure types used to classify the specimens are: The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes. The weight loss is calculated after each step, and reveals if the sample has been properly heat-treated.
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. Classification of the structure after A Practice A analysis will determine if the material is acceptable or if additional testing is required.
The test uses a visual inspection of the surface of the bent specimen to determine pass a262-113 fail. This practice includes boiling the sample for 24 to hours asttm the solution above, and measures the materials performance quantitatively. Based on your materials, application, and requirements, the other 4 methods provide specific focuses.
In everyday applications, corrosion varies by materials and solutions. Like what you saw? See Appendix X1 for information regarding test selection. The bent samples are examined at low magnification, where the appearance atm cracks or fissures indicate intergranular attack. It depends on which Practice is selected, but typically ranges from to days for different tests.
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.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis
For example, in highly oxidizing solutions, intergranular attack can occur due to intermetallic phases, while attack of carbides may occur somewhat less oxidizing solutions. Practice B, also known as the Streicher test, uses weight loss analysis to provide a quantitative measure of the materials performance.
It is typically used for stainless alloys such as andCr-Ni-Mo stainless alloys, and nickel alloys to evaluate the intergranular q262-13 associated with the precipitation of chromium carbides at grain boundaries. If you are not sure, please contact us for assistance.
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 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. These practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: 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.
These tests are often run as a qualification test to ensure each ast of stainless steel is properly prepared. How do you select the right ASTM corrosion testing method for your material?
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. The first and fastest step is astmm ASTM A Practice A, a rapid same-day screening method in Oxalic acid to determine the susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. A recent publication on intergranular corrosion.

What is your typical turnaround time? This specification covers the standard practices for detecting susceptibility to intergranular attack in austenitic stainless steels.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. 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. For example, many low-carbon and stabilized stainless steels e. 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 a622-13.
Some specific hazards statements are given in In many cases we can reduce that to as little as 24 hours more than the required testing time if you need fast results.
