ASTM E363-09 Chemical Analysis of Chromium and Ferrochromium
The standard test methods for the chemical analysis of chromium and ferrochromium are covered under the ASTM E363-09 standard method. These test methods are used for the analysis of metals and alloys. They are tested for compliance with compositional specifications. The values reported are in SI units and are considered standard.
ASTM E363-09 standard method covers the procedures for chemical analysis of chromium and ferrochromium for defined limits. The following analytical procedures are described:
Arsenic by the Molybdenum Blue Photometric Test Method
10 to 20
Lead by the Dithizone Photometric Test Method
21 to 31
Chromium by the Sodium Peroxide Fusion-Titrimetric Test Method
32 to 38
Arsenic by the Molybdenum Blue Photometric Test Method- Arsenic is first separated by distillation as the trivalent chloride. Ammonium molybdate is added to form arsenomolybdate, which is then reduced by hydrazine sulfate to form the
molybdenum blue complex. Photometric measurement is made at approximately 850 nm.

Lead by the Dithizone Photometric Test Method- After the dissolution of the sample, lead is precipitated with ammonium hydroxide. Interfering metals are complexed with sodium citrate and sodium cyanide, and the lead dithizone complex is extracted with chloroform. Photometric measurement is made at 520 nm.
Chromium by the Sodium Peroxide Fusion-Titrimetric Test Method- The sample is fused in sodium peroxide. After the dissolution of the melt in dilute sulfuric acid, chromium and manganese are oxidized by ammonium peroxydisulfate with silver nitrate as a catalyst. The permanganate ions are reduced with hydrochloric acid, and the chromate ions are reduced by adding an excess of standard ferrous ammonium sulfate salt. The excess ferrous ions are titrated with a standard potassium permanganate solution.
Specimen size: Samples weighing between 0.500 g to 1.000 g are used for the procedures.
A = milligrams of arsenic found in 50 mL of final test solution, B = grams of sample represented in 50 mL of final test solution.
A = lead found in 10 mL of the final test solution mg, and B = sample represented in 10 mL of the final test solution in g.
A = millilitres of 0.1 NK2Cr2O7 solution equivalent to 1 g of ferrous ammonium sulfate, B = grams of ferrous ammonium sulfate used, C = millilitres of 0.1 NKMnO4 solution required to titrate the excess ferrous ammonium sulfate, and D = grams of sample used.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
