Standard Test Methods for Evaluating the Corrosion Resistance of Powder Metallurgy (P/M) Stainless Steel Parts/Specimens by Immersion in a Sodium Chloride Solution
|Publication Date:||10 April 1999|
|ICS Code (Powder metallurgy):||77.160|
1.1 These test methods cover a procedure for evaluating the ability of sintered P/M stainless steel parts/specimens to resist corrosion when immersed in a sodium chloride (NaCl) solution.
1.2 Corrosion resistance is evaluated by one of two methods. In Method 1, the stainless steel parts/specimens are examined periodically and the time to the first appearance of staining or rust is used to indicate the end point. In Method 2, continued exposure to the sodium chloride solution is used to monitor the extent of corrosion as a function of time.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address 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.
