shown on page 2 (ASTM Standard G82). When two metals are connected and in contact with a conducting liquid, the more active metal will corrode and protect.

As the voice of the U. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. The potential is expressed with respect to a saturated calomel reference electrode.

Galvanic Testing of Materials

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The actual potentials themselves are not specified, however.

After 15 yrs on our office roof in Massachusetts, we evaluated staining patterns and extent of corrosion and found certain combinations do not follow trends in the Galvanic Series charts. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

However, most of these charts are based atsm studies performed by the Navy for exposure to seawater submersion and do not include many of the available alloys and coatings used in building construction.

Wherever possible, use a seal, insulator, coating, etc. Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.


Some Means of preventing galvanic corrosion: When a metal is immersed in any electrolytic solution, it is possible to measure its dissolution natural corrosion. The use of unfavourable surface area ratios has led to many expensive and often spectacular failures. Thus, only the relative position of materials in the series is known and not the magnitude of their potential difference.

Galvanic Corrosion

You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. In the winter ofSGH started the testing program for metals and metallic coatings often used in architectural applications.

Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5.

This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. For each solution, it is possible to establish a “galvanic series”, that is, a ranking of different metals and alloys as a function of this measured potential.

Asfm to Alert PDF. Already Subscribed to this document. Such a series is illustrated in Fig. Standard sample Qstm Series charts e. Galvanic corrosion can be defined simply as being the effect resulting from contact between two different metals or alloys in a conducting corrosive environment.

Galvanic Testing of Materials | Simpson Gumpertz & Heger

Our testing includes the following metals:. Because galvanic corrosion can occur at a high rate, it is important that a means be available to alert the user of products or equipment that involve the use of dissimilar metal combinations in an electrolyte of the possible effects of galvanic corrosion.

V82 to main content. This type of accelerated corrosion is referred to as galvanic corrosion. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5.


You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. Suggestions for avoiding known qstm are included.

ASTM G82 – 98(2014)

Contact between dissimilar metals can lead to accelerated deterioration due to galvanic corrosion. The coupling potential must of necessity lie between the two potentials for the uncoupled metals and an increase in corrosion is generally observed in the less noble alloy and a decrease or suppression of corrosion in the more noble material.

When two different metals or alloys immersed in the same solution are joined together electrically, an astn current will be set up between them, resulting from the short circuit created. SGH is conducting ongoing, long-term testing on combinations of metals and metallic coatings to evaluate the severity of galvanic corrosion and the potential for staining. Galvanic corrosion between a copper tube and copper-phosporus braze xstm the brazing region.

Thus, zinc covered with corrosion products can become more “noble” than iron in certain hot waters problem encountered in domestic hot water tanks ; tin can become less “noble” than iron in organic acid solutions problem encountered in food cans.

This type of Galvanic Series has been put in graphical form as a series of bars displaying the range of potentials exhibited by the metal listed opposite each bar. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email.

Such a series is shown in Fig. Another term employed is galvanic coupling.
