A recent publication on intergranular corrosion. 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. 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.

Duplicate samples from both sides of a sheet sample are evaluated to determine if carburization results in intergranular attack. The bent samples are examined at low magnification, where the appearance of cracks or fissures indicate intergranular attack. Contact us now for pricing or a quote! Asm Version s – view previous versions of standard. 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. In everyday applications, corrosion varies by a262-31 and solutions. Intergranular corrosion occurs as a result of precipitation of nitridescarbidesand other intermetallic phasessuch as sigma phase, that occurs along the grain boundaries.

The test evaluates the resistance of extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes. 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. The oxalic acid test is commonly used before the Strauss test to s262-13 if a sample is susceptible; samples that pass method A will generally show low corrosion rates in the Strauss test.


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.

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. See Appendix X1 for information regarding test selection. Each ASTM A Practice specification includes a list of the grades of stainless steels and the acceptable etch structures for the specific alloys.

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.

Like what you saw? 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.

The weight loss is calculated after each step, and reveals if the sample has been properly heat-treated. The test uses a visual inspection of the surface of the bent specimen to determine pass or fail. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Classification of the structure after A Practice A analysis will determine if the material is acceptable or if additional testing is required.

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. How do you select the right ASTM corrosion testing method for your material? The etch structure types used to classify the specimens are: Some specific hazards statements are given in The Strauss test is commonly used to 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.

Practice B, also known as the Streicher test, uses weight loss analysis to provide a quantitative measure of the materials performance. Please share this page: Due to the variance of attack in different materials, numerous methods Practices B-F are used to assess intergranular corrosion. The test is generally performed for acceptance of a262-3, but not sufficient for rejection of materials. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.


This practice includes boiling the sample for 24 to hours in the solution above, and measures the materials performance quantitatively. If you are not sure, please contact us for assistance. In many cases we can reduce that to as little as 24 hours more than the required testing time if you need fast results.

ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis

What is your typical turnaround time? Methods for preparing the atm specimens, rapid screening tests, apparatus setup and testing procedures, and calculations and report contents are described for each testing practice. Based on your materials, application, and requirements, the other 4 methods provide specific focuses. These practices include five intergranular corrosion tests, namely: For example, in highly oxidizing solutions, intergranular attack can occur due to intermetallic phases, while attack of carbides may occur somewhat less oxidizing solutions.

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.

The Huey test works well to analyze chromium depleted regions and ast precipitates, such as sigma phase, and is also used for materials in strongly oxidizing environments such as nitric acid. Please specify the maximum allowable corrosion rate and any available data on the sensitizing heat treatment performed.

Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around the grain boundaries. In SEM analysis, intergranular corrosion is clear by the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away.
