Electrolytic at 50—60 V for 10—20 s. Properly discard when solution turns e4007 yellow. Remove the specimen from the etchant when the surface is colored violet, rinse and dry.

Higher percentage of HCl minimizes pitting. Anodize 1—3 min, 20—45 V d-c. Small additions of HNO3 activate solution and minimize pitting.

A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. John Wiley and Sons. Use stainless steel cathode and platinum or Nichrome wire contact to specimen. Lightly pre-etch specimen before use. Up to 30 mL of HCl may be used for more vigorous action. Stains carbides and sigma.

Rinse with ethanol or methanol and blow dry. A vacuum level of 1. Rinse with methanol and blow dry. Alloying elements in the metal sometimes separate into microscopic particles with distinct shapes. A light pre-etch, or a slight amount of polishing relief, may lead to sharper delination of the constituents after vapor deposition. aastm

Immerse or swab few seconds to few minutes. Additional information can be obtained at the EPA website3. Stains carbides dark, ferrite yellow, sigma blue. Use stainless steel cathode. Properly discard when dark orange color. Electrolytic at 60— V for 5—30 s. Electrolytic at 6 V for 5—20 s. Use at 1 V dc, s, with stainless cathode; 0.


Use small portion of stock solution for 4 h max. Pure Cu 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31d, 32, 33, 34b, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 8b,43, 28 44, 31d, 34b, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 45, 46, 41, 45 41 41 34, 47, 48, 40, 49, 50 41 51, 52 8b general structure chemical polish and etch general structure general general general general general general structure structure structure structure structure structure Cu-Al aluminum bronze Cu-Be Cu-Cr Cu-Mn Cu-Ni Cu-Si Cu-Sn tin bronze Admiralty metal Gilding metal Cartridge brass Free-cutting brass Nickel silver Cu alloys general structure 31d, 32, 33, 41, 42, 49 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 44, 41, 31d, 32, 33, 34b, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39,53, 43, 28, 49 42, 49, 54 55, 56 general structure general structure chemical polish and etch darkens beta in alpha-beta brass etching of cold worked brass general structure Dysprosium Base: H2SO4 may be increased to 20 mL for deeper attack.

Sometimes a few passes on the? Swab gently 10—15 s. After coloration begins, allow the solution to settle and remain motionless. Electrolytic at 30—65 V for 10—60 s. For each metal and alloy, one or more etchant numbers and their corresponding use is indicated.

Standard Practice for Microetching Metals and Alloys

For highly corrosion-resistant alloys, use 20—30 mL HCl. Users should be aware of the type of hazards involved in the use of all chemicals used, including those hazards that are immediate, long-term, visible, invisible, Copyright? Users of atm standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.


HF attacks and HNO3 brightens the surface of titanium. Electrolytic at 6 V for 3—6 s.

ASTM E – 07()e1 Standard Practice for Microetching Metals and Alloys

Film on etched aluminum bronze removed by No. Electrolytic at 30 V for 30 s. Swab 3—5 s for F and T6, 1—2 min for T4 and O temper.

Our laboratory also provides laboratory services satm plastic testingmetal testingrubber testingoil testingpaint testingplating testingadhesive testingcircuit board testingand other testing. If pitting occurs, reduce voltage. Solution should be freshly prepared.

Repeat three times and repolish lightly.

A hot water rinse just prior to etching may be used to activate the reaction. Forgings often show elongation of individual grains which indicate the orientation and flow of the material. Pure Be Be alloys Chromium Base: Cast satm often has a dendritic fern like structure formed by the distribution of silicon.

Clean in HNO3 if necessary.
