Standard Practice for Evaluating Intergranular Corrosion Resistance of Heat Treatable Aluminum Alloys by Immersion in Sodium Chloride + Hydrogen Peroxide Solution
|Publication Date:||10 October 1997|
|ICS Code (Aluminium and aluminium alloys):||77.120.10|
1.1 This practice covers the procedures for immersion tests in sodium chloride + hydrogen peroxide solution. It is primarily for tests of wrought heat treatable aluminum alloys (2XXX and 7XXX) but may be used for other aluminum alloys, including castings. It sets forth the specimen preparation procedures and the environmental conditions of the test and the means for controlling them.
1.2 This practice is intended for evaluations during alloy development and for evaluating production where it may serve as a control test on the quality of successive lots of the same material (see MIL-H-6088 and U.S. Federal Test Method Std. 151b). Therefore strict test conditions are stipulated for maximum assurance that variations in results are attributable to lot-to-lot differences in the material being tested.
Note 1-This practice does not address sampling or interpretation or significance of results.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
