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.

Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. Such a series is illustrated in Fig. Thus, only the relative position of materials in the series is known and not the magnitude of their potential difference. 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.

Wherever possible, use a seal, insulator, coating, etc. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. Already Subscribed to this document. 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.

Ashm other units of measurement are included in this standard. 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. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution.

Suggestions for avoiding known pitfalls are included. SGH is conducting ongoing, long-term testing on g8 of metals and metallic coatings to evaluate the severity of galvanic corrosion and the potential for staining. Thus, zinc covered with corrosion products can become more “noble” than iron in certain hot waters problem encountered in asstm hot water tanks ; tin can become less “noble” than iron in organic acid solutions problem encountered in food cans.


This type of accelerated corrosion is referred to as galvanic corrosion.

Standard sample Galvanic Series charts e. Some Means of preventing galvanic corrosion: Galvanic corrosion can be defined simply as being g822 effect resulting from contact between two different metals or alloys in a conducting corrosive environment. Contact between dissimilar metals can lead to accelerated deterioration due to galvanic corrosion.

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. The blue cells indicate the potentials in the active state for passivatable metals.

Galvanic Testing of Materials

SGH prepared 1 sq ft metal pieces and loose-locked pairs of metal pieces with a hem. Such a series is shown in Fig. 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.

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 electric current will be set up between them, resulting from the short circuit created.

The gg82 potentials themselves are not specified, however. 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.

Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. 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 asmt use of dissimilar metal combinations in an electrolyte of the possible effects of galvanic corrosion. Back Galvanic series for various conducting materials in seawater water velocity 2. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

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. Galvanic corrosion between a copper tube and copper-phosporus braze in the brazing region.

In collaboration with Saracen Properties building owner. 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.

The potential is expressed with respect to a saturated calomel reference electrode. Need more than one copy?
