Due to the variance of attack in different materials, numerous methods Practices B-F are used to assess intergranular corrosion.
ASTM A Intergranular Corrosion Testing and Analysis
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. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. 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.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
aastm Methods for preparing the test specimens, rapid screening tests, apparatus setup and testing procedures, astn calculations and report contents are described for each testing practice. 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.
Like what you saw? Practice B, also known as the Streicher test, uses weight loss analysis to provide a quantitative measure of the materials performance. See Appendix X1 for information regarding test selection.
The etch structure types used to classify the specimens are: The test evaluates the resistance q262-13 extra-low-carbon steels to sensitization and intergranular attack from welding or heat treatment processes.
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 acid.
Each ASTM A Zstm specification includes a list of the grades of stainless steels and the acceptable etch structures for the specific alloys. Some specific hazards statements are given in a2662-13 This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. These tests are often run as a qualification test to ensure each batch of stainless steel is properly prepared. Based on your materials, application, and requirements, the other 4 methods provide specific focuses.

It depends on which Practice is selected, but typically ranges from to days for different tests.
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. Astk weight loss is calculated after each step, and reveals if the sample has been properly heat-treated. Intergranular corrosion shows up as the dark black lines around the grain boundaries. For example, many low-carbon and stabilized stainless steels e.
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. This specification covers the standard practices for detecting susceptibility to intergranular attack in austenitic stainless steels. For example, in highly oxidizing solutions, intergranular attack can occur due to intermetallic phases, while attack of carbides may occur somewhat less oxidizing solutions.
Resistance to Intergranular Corrosion of Austenitic Stainless Steels
The chart below comes from astmm ASTM A standard for selection of the appropriate test by alloy type:. Intergranular corrosion occurs as a result of precipitation of nitridescarbidesand other intermetallic phasessuch as sigma phase, that occurs along the grain boundaries. In satm cases we can reduce that to as little as 24 hours more than the required testing time if you need fast results. 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.
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. 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 a2262-13 the dark lines where the grain boundaries are eaten away.
A recent publication on intergranular corrosion. 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 uses a visual inspection of the surface of the bent specimen to determine pass or fail. The test is generally performed for acceptance of materials, but not sufficient for rejection of materials. 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.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. 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 Strauss test is commonly used to evaluate the heat-treatment of as-received material, the effectiveness of alloying additions atm elements such as Nb and Ti, or the effectiveness of reducing carbon content to resist intergranular attack.
