Pagination or Media Count:
Between 1960 and 1970, about 20,000 specimens of 475 alloys were exposed in the seawater in the Pacific Ocean in order to conduct a program on the effects of deep-ocean environments on materials. The test specimens included steels, cast irons, stainless steels, copper, nickel, aluminum, titanium, miscellaneous alloys, and wire ropes. They were exposed at the surface and at nominal depths of 2,500 and 6,000 feet for periods of time varying from 123 to 1,064 days. The results of their corrosion behavior have been compiled, analyzed, and evaluated in the report.
