Standard Test Method for Electronic Measurement for Hydrogen Embrittlement From Cadmium-Electroplating Processes
Includes all amendments and changes through Reapproval Notice , 2012
Published By:ASTM International (ASTM)
This test method covers an electronic hydrogen detection instrument procedure for measurement of plating permeability to hydrogen. This method measures a variable related to hydrogen absorbed by steel during plating and to the hydrogen permeability of the plate during post plate baking. A specific application of this method is controlling cadmium-plating processes in which the plate porosity relative to hydrogen is critical, such as cadmium on high-strength steel.
