Determination of austenitic and ferritic grain size

METALLOGRAPHIC TEST TO DETERMINE THE SIZE OF AUSTENITIC-FERRITIC GRAIN

Purpose
The microstructural examination is performed in order to define the size of austenitic-ferritic grain.

Description

The observation is made at 100X and, by comparison with reference images contained in the standard, it is possible to classify the ferritic-austenitic grain size of a longitudinal section of the steel.

What is for?

The analysis of the grain size is a key parameter both for evaluation of resistance characteristics and heat treatment / resistance to oxidation.

On what this analysis is performed / sampling

The sample should be obtained from a section of the component as provided in the standard.

Reference Standards

The main reference standards are: UNI EN ISO 643 and ASTM E112.

The metallurgical laboratory of TEC Eurolab, offers its expertise for your testing needs in this field.
