Development of new method to characterize the durability of stainless steels to crevice attack in natural and treated seawaters (CREVCORR)

Objective

The project will develop a new test method to characterize the susceptibility of stainless steels to crevice attack in natural and treated seawaters. For many industry sectors crevice corrosion of stainless steels represent a problem both cost-, safety- and environmentally wise. A new test method for qualification of materials will give a significant contribution to the establishment of safe operational limits of different stainless steel alloys and provide manufacturers and users with a tool which reliably and efficiently real possible durability effects of marginal material qualities. The new test method will therefore represent a qualification scheme for passive materials and alloys making it possible for manufactures to qualify materials and users to make durable materials selections. The new test method will be sought to be adopted by ISO.
