    Abstract

    There is relatively little data available on the corrosion resistance of soft magnetic, controlled expansion, and glass sealing alloys. This has been due in part to the relatively innocuous traditional service environments. The primary purpose of this paper is to provide corrosion data on a wide variety of iron-base, nickel-base, and cobalt-base alloys typically used for magnetic, controlled expansion, and glass sealing applications. The data presented systematically characterize the corrosion resistance of these alloys using humidity and salt spray testing and provide a database for the selection of materials as well as the development of new test procedures.
