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.

Due to modifications in the electrolyte, inversions may occur in the potential series. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. When a metal is immersed in any electrolytic solution, it is possible to measure its dissolution natural corrosion. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Galvanic Testing of Materials

The blue cells indicate the potentials in the active state for passivatable metals. Our testing includes the following metals: 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.

This type of gg82 corrosion is referred to as galvanic corrosion. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 5. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. We have no amendments or corrections for this standard.

Another term employed is galvanic coupling. 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.

ASTM G82 – 98(2014)

No other units of measurement are included in this standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.


In the winter ofSGH started the testing program for metals and asgm coatings often used in architectural applications. It astj 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. Add to Alert PDF. 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.

SGH prepared 1 sq ft metal pieces and loose-locked pairs of metal pieces with a hem. Need more than one copy? The potentials themselves versus an appropriate reference half-cell are listed so that the potential difference between metals in the series can be determined. Link to Active This link will always route to the asrm Active version of the standard. As the voice of the U. 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.

Suggestions for avoiding known pitfalls are included. 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. For each solution, it is possible to establish a “galvanic series”, that is, a ranking of f82 metals and alloys as a function of this measured potential.

The potential is expressed with respect to a saturated calomel reference electrode.

Contact between dissimilar metals can lead to accelerated deterioration due to galvanic corrosion. The metal that will suffer increased corrosion in a galvanic couple in that environment can then be predicted from the qstm position of the two metals in the series.

Such a series is shown in Fig. 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.


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. Thus, only the relative position of materials in the series is known and not the magnitude of their potential difference.

Galvanic corrosion between a copper tube and copper-phosporus braze in the brazing region. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. 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.

The actual potentials themselves are not specified, however. This standard is not included in any packages. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. Suggestions for avoiding known pitfalls are included. In collaboration with Saracen Properties building owner. Astmm testing includes the following metals:. Already Subscribed to this document.

Wherever possible, use a seal, insulator, coating, etc. 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.
