A. Dear Jaya,
You can carry out the accelerated aging test for this purpose.
1. Mark the rolling direction on the sample.
2. Heat sample to 150 °C for 1 hour.
3. Test the sample for luders band.
If there is no evidence of luders bands, then the material will be safe for 3 months.

Q. Thickness of sample will be 0.35 to 0.50; for that 150 °C is ok to check. All the prepainted GI specimens show luders band during test. But if GI samples given heavy deformation, then no band observed. Please suggest. We select low carbon steel with 0.045 C, 0.20 Mn.jaya boregowada [returning]
