Corrosion and stress corrosion cracking can be significant issues for stainless steels used in a range of industries. We offer testing for both pitting and intergranular corrosion types as well as stress corrosion cracking. There are numerous standards which are applicable to corrosion testing and we typically provide testing to one of the following standards:
- BS EN ISO 3651-1 Detecting Susceptibility to Intergranular Attack in Stainless Steels in media containing Nitric acid
- ASTM G28 – Susceptibility to Intergranular Corrosion in Wrought, Nickel-Rich, Chromium-Bearing Alloys
- BS EN ISO 3651-2 & ASTM A262-E – Detecting Susceptibility to Intergranular Attack in Stainless Steels in media containing Sulphuric acid
- ASTM G48 – Pitting and Crevice Corrosion Resistance of Stainless Steels and Related Alloys by Use of Ferric Chloride Solution
- ASTM A923 Method C Ferric Chloride test for Classification of Structures of Duplex Stainless Steels.
- ASTM G36 Stress Corrosion Cracking in a boiling Magnesium Chloride solution
We can also undertake bespoke corrosion testing to accommodate client requirements.
