Properly discard when solution turns dark yellow. Electrolytic at 10 V 0. If surface activation is necessary,? Distilled water may be added to maintain hydration, It must only be stored in plastic or glass bottles with nonmetallic lids. For best results use before pellets have dissolved.

Follow awtm electrolytic etch at low ast, density in same solution. All persons using any etchants should be thoroughly familiar with all of the chemicals involved astm e407-07 the proper procedure for handling, mixing, and astm e407-07 of each chemical, as well as any combinations of those chemicals. Solution A is used as a chemical polish, though some etching will occur. Adding a wetting agent such as zepherin chloride will increase response.

Can increase HNO3 to increase strength. Use this solution for alternate etch and polishing. Swab 2 or more minutes for desired surface. Pure Th Th alloys Tin Base: Electrolytic at 3 V for 2—10 s.


Distilled water is then slowly added to the wheel and polishing continued until the surface is bright. Swab 3—5 s for F and T6, 1—2 min for T4 and O temper.

For stock solution, mix? CrO3 may be increased up to 20 g for difficult alloys. H2SO4 may be increased to 20 mL for deeper attack. Electrolytic at 10 V 0. Originally approved in Stop astm e407-07 when surface is red-violet. Add 2 drops of HCl just before using. It may be helpful to place the specimen on a small piece of white paper. Stop when surface is dark. Use a polyethylene beaker to contain the etchant if it contains? Gently agitate the solution while observing the polished surface.

Composition astj will saturate the astm e407-07 with NaCl.

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

HNO3 may be increased to 30 mL in methanol only depending on alloy. Agitate solution gently until coloration begins, allow to settle. Stains sigma and chi yellow to red brown, ferrite gray to blue gray, carbides barely touched, austenite not touched. HF attacks and Aztm brightens the surface of titanium. Your comments are invited either for revision of this astm e407-07 or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

Use fresh or age up to 1 min. Swab 1—3 min in Solution A acts as etch polish. Rinse in cold water. Electrolytic at e40707 V ac for 1—2 min. For highly corrosion-resistant alloys, use 20—30 mL HCl. May be used electrolytically. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the astm e407-07 shown below. Repeat as often as necessary.
