ABSTRACT It is common practice to perform intergranular corrosion testing in accordance with ASTM (1) G28 on solid solution nickel alloys, e.g. UNS N . Alloy 22 is a Ni-Cr-Mo alloy (Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum) and is one of the most versatile corrosion resistant alloys used in industry today. Intergranular Attack Susceptibility For Nickel Alloys.

Samples may be rectangular or cylindrical to suit the test vessel, but where a bend test is t28, it is suggested that the sample be a minimum of mm long. R Axtm, Corrosion Tests and Standards: Alternatively, a welded test-piece in the as-welded condition may be tested. SEP does not require ageing, although it might be required in a specification calling up this standard. Where a bend test is required, the sample must be bent over a mandrel of a diameter related to the specimen diameter, without any cracking, as determined by inspection under a low power microscope and a microsection in any suspicious areas.

Someone would have experience in this matter.

I am working with incoloy and am trying to make some corrosion tests according to ASTM G28, which uses a solution of ferric sulphate with sulfuric acid. Astmm the case of nickel-rich, chromium-bearing alloys, the test method may be applied to wrought and weldments of products. It can be seen that some alloys fall into two categories, and no guidelines are given for selecting the most appropriate.

Corrosion Materials – ASTM G28 test

This must be established independently by specific tests or by service experience. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ When migrating the old forums over to our new forums we were unable to retain the identity of the authors, so the old posts will show up as “anonymous”. It does not say what to do about duplex or super austenitic alloys.

The ASTM G28 test methods A and B are utilized in many industries as quality control tests in order to assess the resistance to intergranular corrosion of various stainless steels and nickel-based alloys, such as Alloy and Alloy However, there are necessarily limitations in the potential applicability of standard tests because the mechanism of corrosion in the service environment may be different than that targeted in the standard test, due to the difference between the actual service environment and the test solution.


The latter is a German test, but it is often called up in European projects. The exception to this is ASTM G28 method A, where rates for the onset of intergranular corrosion are described in reference 1. ASTM G28 lists alloys and specifies the test exposure for each. The precipitation of such chromium-rich or molybdenum-rich particles often carbides usually also leads to regions depleted of Cr or Mo surrounding the precipitates.

The uniform corrosion rate obtained by this test method, which is a function of minor variations in alloy composition, may easily mask the intergranular corrosion components of the overall corrosion rate on alloys N, N, N, and N Methods B and E adtm suggested for all grades of series austenitic alloys, while method F is t28 for cast type alloys.

Sensitization or undesirable intergranular precipitation may occur due to deleterious thermal cycles, because of welding or heat treatment, for example. ASTM G28 does not require samples to be heat treated. However, the ASTM standards acknowledge that the environments that the material will experience in service are likely to differ from those of the test methods, in which case the corrosion performance could be different.

Table 1 below shows the various methods for four common standards: 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.


Materials shown to be susceptible may or may not be intergranularly corroded in other environments.

For many alloys, the onset is at 0. Warning statements are given in 5. The test methods in Table 1 were designed with specific alloys in mind, but the proliferation of new CRAs has meant that the selection of a suitable test method is difficult.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: There are a number of g2 tests when it comes to the intergranular corrosion testing of corrosion resistant alloys CRA.

Where a standard is included in a purchase specification, this must be followed, although it is advised that unsuitable tests, such as the Huey test for duplex and super austenitic stainless steels, are queried.

These regions will exhibit a lower resistance to the initiation of corrosion in the ASTM tests, and this is where the intergranular corrosion begins. Discussion Forums – The Hendrix Group. About us Contact us Help Terms of use. From your description, it could be dilute sulfuric acid for which Incoloy is not suitable Hope this helps C.

Advanced search Show search help. ISO is specifically for duplex and all austenitic stainless steels, and recommends ageing at two different temperatures:. ASTM G28 was designed for nickel-based alloys, and a list of applicable alloys asgm methods A and B is in the standard.

For ferric sulphate – depending on the concentration and temp, it depends on suitabiity. This means that carbide formation during welding is highly unlikely, and modern CRAs should easily pass one of these tests. This document describes all three of these tests for four common standards, and describes the differences. ASTM G28 method B is a more aggressive test than method A and is asstm for more corrosion resistant alloys, as listed in the document.

This test should be avoided for most CRAs, except in the circumstances described below, in section 4.
