This practice can be used to extract carbides, borides, TCP and GCP phases, which can then be qualitatively or quantitatively analyzed by X-ray diffraction or microanalysis.2
Careful control of parameters is necessary for reproducible quantitative results. Within a given laboratory, such results can be obtained routinely; however, caution must be exercised when comparing quantitative results from different laboratories.3
Comparable qualitative results can be obtained routinely among different laboratories using this procedure.3View Less
1.1 This practice covers a procedure for the isolation of carbides, borides, TCP (topologically close-packed), and GCP (geometrically close-packed) phases (Note 0) in nickel and nickel-iron base gamma prime strengthened alloys. Contamination of the extracted residue by coarse matrix (gamma) or gamma prime particles, or both, reflects the condition of the alloy rather than the techniques mentioned in this procedure.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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. (See 18.104.22.168 and 4.1.1.)
Ni3 Ti (eta phase) has been found to be soluble in the electrolyte for some alloys.
