Standard Test Method for Determination of Hydrogen in Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys by Inert Gas Fusion

Significance and Use

5.1 This test method is intended for the routine testing of aluminum and aluminum alloys to quantitatively determine the mass fraction of hydrogen in aluminum and aluminum alloys. It is not intended to verify compliance with compositional specifications because of the lack of certified reference materials. It is assumed that all who use this test method will be trained analysts capable of performing common laboratory procedures skillfully and safely. It is expected that the work will be performed in a properly equipped laboratory.


1.1 This test method applies to the determination of hydrogen in aluminum and aluminum alloys in mass fractions from 0.05 mg/kg to 1 mg/kg.

1.2 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.3 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
