Standard Guide for Estimating the Atmospheric Corrosion Resistance of Low-Alloy Steels
|Publication Date:||10 May 2001|
|ICS Code (Corrosion of metals):||77.060|
1.1 This guide presents two methods for estimating the atmospheric corrosion resistance of low-alloy weathering steels, such as those described in Specifications A242/A242M, A588/A588M, A606 Type 4, A709/A709M grades 50W, HPS 70W, and 100W, A852/A852M, and A871/A871M. One method gives an estimate of the long-term thickness loss of a steel at a specific site based on results of short-term tests. The other gives an estimate of relative corrosion resistance based on chemical composition.
