ASTM standard B 575 provides the requirements for the chemical composition of Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum (Ni-Cr-Mo) alloys such as Alloy 22 (N06022). The composition of each element is given in a range (e.g., the lowest content of Mo is specified as 12.5 weight percent and the highest as 14.5 weight percent. It is important to determine the dependence of Alloy 22 electrochemical behavior on the composition of the alloying elements as they vary from the lowest to the highest end of the ranges specified in ASTM B 575 standard. Seven heats of Alloy 22 plate were melted and processed. The plates were tested in the mill annealed (MA) and solution heat treated (SHT) condition. Cyclic potentiodynamic polarization tests were performed in 1 M NaCl solution at 90°C. Results show no influence of Alloy 22 chemistry variations or heat treating on the measured repassivation potential.
