Standard Test Method for Stress-Corrosion of Titanium Alloys by Aircraft Engine Cleaning Materials
|Publication Date:||10 November 2001|
|ICS Code (Titanium):||49.025.30|
1.1 This test method establishes a test procedure for determining the propensity of aircraft turbine engine cleaning and maintenance materials for causing stress corrosion cracking of titanium alloy parts.
1.2 The evaluation is conducted on representative titanium alloys by determining the effect of contact with cleaning and maintenance materials on tendency of prestressed titanium alloys to crack when subsequently heated to elevated temperatures.
1.3 Test conditions are based upon manufacturer's maximum recommended operating solution concentration.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary statements, see 5.3 and 5.6.
