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.

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 ast, area S A of the anode. Because galvanic corrosion can occur at a high rate, it is important that a means be available to 8g2 the user of products or equipment that involve the use of dissimilar metal combinations in an electrolyte of the possible effects of galvanic corrosion.

Galvanic Testing of Materials

The actual potentials themselves are not specified, however. The blue cells indicate the potentials in the active state for passivatable metals.

Such a series is shown in Fig. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard sstm establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Suggestions for avoiding known pitfalls are included. In collaboration with Saracen Properties building owner. Contact between dissimilar metals can lead to accelerated deterioration due to galvanic corrosion.

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. 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 ashm the Galvanic Series charts. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.


Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. The potentials themselves versus an appropriate reference half-cell are listed so that the potential difference between metals in b82 series can be determined.

Galvanic Corrosion

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. Thus, only the relative position of materials in the series is known and not the magnitude of their potential difference. SGH prepared 1 sq ft metal pieces and loose-locked pairs of metal pieces with a hem. 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.

Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. Galvanic corrosion between a copper tube and copper-phosporus braze in the brazing region. When two different metals or alloys immersed in the same solution are joined together electrically, an electric current will be set up between them, resulting from the short circuit created. Our testing includes the following metals:.

ASTM G82 – 98(2014)

As the voice of the U. The use of unfavourable surface area ratios has led to many expensive and often spectacular failures. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. In the winter ofSGH started the testing program for metals and metallic coatings often used in architectural applications. Already Subscribed to this document. 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 g2 alloy and a decrease or suppression of corrosion in the more noble material.


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.

Another term employed is galvanic coupling. Our testing includes the following metals: Such a series is illustrated in Fig. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5. 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 standard is not included in any packages. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This type of accelerated corrosion is referred to as galvanic corrosion. When a metal is immersed in any electrolytic solution, it is possible to measure its dissolution natural corrosion. 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. We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5.

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 galvanic corrosion.
