Abstract:

Four hydrogen embrittlement test methods were evaluated using three paint strippers as the embrittling media. Results were compared with those obtained with notched C-rings, the method now prescribed in paint stripper specifications. In general, all the methods give good results and good correlation. The main differences were in ease of use.
