Abstract

In addition to the standardized intergranular corrosion testing methods to detect sensitization in austenitic stainless steels, electrochemical test methods, i.e. the potentiokinetic reactivation test (EPR) and the anodic polarization and constant potential etching methods in perchloric acid solution containing sodium chloride, have been developed. The results of these electrochemical measurements are compared with those obtained from copper sulfate-sulfuric acid tests.
