Description / Abstract:

This test method 2 covers the determination of the resistance to oxidation of nickel-chromium and nickelchromium- iron electrical heating alloys at elevated temperatures under intermittent heating. Procedures for a constanttemperature cycle are provided. This test method is used for internal comparative purposes only.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

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 become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

2 Further information on this test method is given in a paper by F. E. Bash and J. W. Harsch, "Life Tests on Metallic Resistor Materials for Electrical Heating," Proceedings, ASTEA, American Society for Testing and Materials. Vol 29, Part II, 1929, p. 506.
