Ferric chloride pitting testing per ASTM G48(Method A)

Ferric chloride pitting testing is used to determine the relative pitting resistance of stainless steels and related alloys. The relative performance of alloys in a ferric chloride solution has been correlated to performance in various real environments such as natural seawater at ambient temperature.  This procedure can be used to compare the effects of corrosion resistance on the base material after manufacturing processes such as heat treating or welding.
