Sulfur printing shall be performed in accordance with Practice E See the specific precautionary statement in 5. Contact our sales team to assist in specification review or a cost estimate for your testing. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version e3381 the standard.
The most common reagent for macroetching iron and steel is a 1: Click here to request a quote Chicago Lab: Development of grain flow in a forged ast or fastener, which is a critical wstm for the integrity of the forging.
Macroetch Examinations Macroetching, also known as deep etching, involves etching specimens prepared with a suitable acid or reagent for macrostructural examination at low magnifications and rating by a grades series of photographs showing the incidence of certain conditions such as: The metallurgical engineering team at SGS MSi has the expertise to meet all e3881 material requirements for acid etch processes.
Steels react differently to etching reagents because of variations in chemical composition, method of manufacture, heat treatment and many other variables. Study of weld structures, definition of weld penetration, dilution of filler metal by base metals, entrapment of flux, porosity, and cracks in weld and heat affect zones, etc.
ASTM E – 17 – Standard Method of Macroetch Testing Steel Bars, Billets, Blooms, and Forgings
Examination and rating of specimens shall be in accordance with Sections 10 and 11 of this E standard. Evaluation of machined parts for grinding cracks in tools and dies.
Establishment of general standards for acceptance or rejection for all conditions is impractical as some conditions zstm be considered relative to the part in which it occurs.

The method employs the action of an acid or other corrosive agent to develop the macrostructural characteristics of a suitably prepared specimen. Macroetching, also known as deep etching, involves etching specimens prepared with a suitable acid or reagent for macrostructural examination at low magnifications and rating by a grades series of photographs showing the incidence of certain conditions such as: The method is limited in application to bars, billets, blooms, and forgings of carbon and low alloy steels.
Evaluation of heat treated parts to determine locations of hard or soft spots, tong marks, quench cracks, case depth in induction hardened or carburized parts, and effectiveness of stop-off coatings. With reductions over a 3: It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the 3e81 of regulatory limitations prior to use.
