Intergranular corrosion (IGC) is a type of corrosion that occurs preferentially along the grain boundaries of a material.
It can lead to a reduction in the mechanical properties of the material and can ultimately cause failure. There are several methods for testing the susceptibility of a material to IGC, and the most appropriate method will depend on the specific material and application.
Several methods exist for the testing of intergranular corrosion. The selection of the appropriate test method for detecting IGC depends on various factors such as material composition, application, and the required accuracy of the test results.
It is recommended to consult with corrosion experts to select the most suitable testing method for the material and application in question.
At IXAR, our corrosion experts can provide you with guidance on the best-suited method for detecting susceptibility to intergranular attack.
