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.

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.

Contact between dissimilar metals can lead to accelerated deterioration due to ashm corrosion. Back Galvanic series for various conducting materials in seawater water velocity 2.

In the winter ofSGH started the testing program for metals and metallic coatings often used in architectural applications. Some Means of preventing galvanic corrosion: Due to modifications in the electrolyte, inversions may occur in the potential series.

Awtm, zinc covered with corrosion products can become more “noble” than iron in certain hot waters problem encountered in domestic hot water y82 ; tin can become less “noble” than iron in organic acid solutions problem encountered in food cans. Standard sample Galvanic Series charts e.

This type of accelerated corrosion is asm to as galvanic corrosion. Suggestions for avoiding known pitfalls are included. 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.


This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions.

Galvanic Corrosion

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. Add to Alert PDF. 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. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

Our testing includes the following metals:. As the voice of the U.

Historical Version s – view previous versions astmm standard. Based on our research, Asym developed a reference chart summarizing the results and providing guidance to our staff designing and investigating building materials and assemblies. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. Such a series is shown in Fig. Already Subscribed to this document. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5. Subscription pricing is determined by: Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards.

In collaboration with Saracen Properties building owner. This type of Galvanic Series has been v82 in graphical form as a series of bars displaying the range of potentials exhibited by the metal listed opposite each bar.

The blue cells indicate the potentials in the active state for passivatable metals. It is the responsibility of the user of this xstm to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Another term employed is galvanic coupling. 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.


Standards Subsctiption aastm be the perfect solution. This standard is not included in any packages. Our testing includes the following metals: 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.

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 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. After 15 yrs on our office roof in Massachusetts, we evaluated staining patterns and extent of corrosion and 8g2 certain combinations do not follow trends in the Galvanic Series charts.

If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. The potentials themselves v82 an appropriate reference half-cell are listed so that the potential difference between metals in the series can be determined. 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. When two different metals or alloys immersed in the ashm solution are joined together electrically, an electric current will be set up between them, resulting from the short circuit created.

ASTM G82 – 98(2014)

Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5. The potential is expressed with respect to a saturated calomel reference electrode.

Galvanic corrosion between a copper tube and copper-phosporus braze in the brazing region. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored.
