"Identifying L605 surfaces that are contaminated with 17-4"
March 2, 2010
I have a product that is manufactured using L605 (Haynes 25). We have 17-4 contamination in the form of agglomerations roughly .060" diameter. Our customer is only concerned about 17-4 on the surface, internal contamination is of little concern.
I'm looking for suggestions on a method to identify any surface connected contamination. My thoughts right now are along the lines of a corrosion test that would highlight the 17-4 but not affect the L605.
