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.

Suggestions for avoiding known pitfalls are included. The use of unfavourable surface area ratios has led to many expensive and often spectacular failures.

Our testing includes the following metals:. 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. The potentials themselves versus an appropriate reference half-cell are listed so that the potential difference between metals in the series can be determined. All other factors being equal, and subject to the precautions in Section 5this increased driving force frequently, although not always, results in a greater degree of g2 corrosion.

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.

Galvanic Testing of Materials

Contact between dissimilar metals can lead to accelerated deterioration due to galvanic corrosion. Skip to main content.


We have no aetm or corrections for this standard. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5. 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.

Based on our research, SGH developed a reference chart summarizing the results and providing guidance to our staff designing and investigating building materials and assemblies. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. When a metal is immersed in any electrolytic solution, it is possible to measure its dissolution natural corrosion. Such a series is shown in Fig. In collaboration with Saracen Properties building owner.

However, most of these charts are based on 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.

For a given current between two different metals, the current density, and hence the rate of dissolution of the less noble metal anode, will be greater the smaller the surface area S A of the anode. Need more than one copy? The metal that will suffer increased corrosion in a galvanic couple in that environment can then be predicted from the relative position of the two metals in the series. Wherever possible, use a seal, insulator, coating, etc. Such a series is illustrated in Fig.


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 can be defined simply as being the effect resulting from contact between two different metals or alloys in a conducting corrosive environment.

Already Subscribed to this document. Galvanic corrosion between a copper tube and copper-phosporus braze in the brazing region.

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.
