1.1 This practice incorporates etching and metallographic examination of Wrought Nickel-Rich, Chromium, Molybdenum-Bearing Alloys such as, but not limited to, UNS N06686 and UNS N10276.
1.2 Microstructures have a strong influence on properties and successful application of metals and alloys. The presence of mu-phase in the microstructure may significantly reduce the corrosion resistance of Wrought Nickel-Rich, Chromium, and Molybdenum-Bearing Alloys.
1.3 This practice may be used to determine the presence of mu-phase in Wrought Nickel-Rich, Chromium, and Molybdenum-Bearing Alloys through comparison of microstructure observed for etched metallographic specimens to a glossary of photomicrographs displaying the presence and absence of mu-phase in the microstructure.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Other units are given in parentheses for information only.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is 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.
