A comparison of field and laboratory corrosion tests of AISI Type 430 stainless steels: M34-20/91E-PDF

“Field tests and accelerated dip-and-dry laboratory tests were carried out to determine the effects of additions of uranium and molybdenum on the corrosion properties of AISI Type 430 stainless steel used as automotive trim. A slight increase in corrosion resistance was obtained with an alloy containing 0.24% uranium, while no deleterious effect was experienced with an alloy containing 0.55% uranium. Increased corrosion resistance was observed with increased molybdenum for two alloys, one of which contained 1.02% and the other 2.03% molybdenum. Correlation of results between the accelerated dip-and-dry laboratory tests and the field tests was not entirely satisfactory. There was, however, some area of agreement between these tests, and further use of the accelerated laboratory test appears warranted"--Abstract, p. i.
