Please share this page: Some specific hazards statements are given in 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 practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: The Copper Sulfate Test is especially effective for determining susceptibility to intergranular attack for low carbon steels.
Examination of intergranular cracks and fissures on bend surface. This method is a hour boiling test for “as received” specimens of stainless steel. 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.
How do you select asfm right ASTM corrosion testing method for your material?
A suitable sample of an austenitic stainless steel is exposed to boiling acidified copper sulfate solution for 15 hours. Sensitization causes the grain boundaries of a material to precipitate, creating carbide deposits and causing the material to be susceptible to intergranular attack. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this 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. From macroscopic imaging to Scanning Electron Microscopy, Element provides turnkey metallographic services using state-of-the-art equipment. These tests are often run as a qualification test to ensure each batch of stainless steel is properly prepared.
Strauss test specimens are boiled in a Copper Sulfate – Sulfuric Acid mixture for 15 hours. Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around the grain boundaries.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. For example, many low-carbon and stabilized stainless steels e.
For example, in highly oxidizing solutions, intergranular attack can occur due to intermetallic phases, while attack of carbides may occur somewhat less oxidizing solutions.
Test sample was etched using Oxalic Acid with electrolyte etching. It depends on which Practice is selected, but typically ranges from to days for different tests. Since high temperature processing such as heat treatment is a common practice, many manufacturers wish to perform intergranular corrosion qualification testing on each batch, to ensure that the material has been processed correctly and does not show signs of corrosion susceptibility.
This method is preferable for chromium depletions and corrosion in intermetallic phases. This specification covers the standard practices for detecting susceptibility to intergranular attack in austenitic stainless steels. 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. Corrosion Tests are conducted to determine the resistance of a metal to chemical attack.
The bent samples are examined at low magnification, where the appearance of cracks or fissures indicate intergranular attack. 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.
A bend test followed by a visual or micro-examination are used to determine “Pass” or “Fail” of test specimens. We provide intergranular corrosion evaluation, salt spray testing, stress corrosion, and various other methods to simulate exposure of your products or materials to corrosive environments. Our knowledgeable scientists have the experience and expertise necessary to determine the most appropriate intergranular attack testing methods for your material while providing actionable results you can rely on.
Although this test method uses some similar equipment, this method should not be confused with Test Method G 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. The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes.
ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis
Based on your materials, application, and requirements, the other adtm methods provide specific focuses. Similar to the Streicher test, the Huey test method uses a nitric acid solution and subjects the specimen to five hour boiling intervals.
Corrosion test is measured by weight loss per area of test sample.
