To slow reaction, add water to mL very carefully with stirring. Summary of Practice 4.
Mix fresh, use plastic coated tongs and polyethylene beaker. Swab 1—3 min in Solution A acts as etch polish. Users should be aware of the type of hazards involved in the use of all chemicals used, including those hazards that are immediate, long-term, visible, invisible, Copyright? Swab gently 5—15 s. Clean in HNO3 if necessary.
Use stainless steel cathode. Colors matrix of Cu alloys.
Long immersion times will result in copper deposition on surface. It may be helpful to place the specimen on a small piece of white paper. Follow with electrolytic etch at low current density in same solution. Warm specimen in boiling water prior to immersion for 10 to s. Made more active by adding few drops of H2SO4 just before use. If specimen has considerable surface? Immerse polished face up for few seconds. Stains carbides and sigma. May be used electrolytically. Distilled water is then slowly added to the wheel and polishing continued until asstm surface is bright.
Stains carbides dark, ferrite yellow, sigma blue. An experienced metallurgist is required to interpret the images created. Swab 2 or more minutes for desired surface. Mix in order given. Immerse few seconds to a minute. Continued Procedure Electrolytic in Solution A: Stop when surface is dark.
If that does not provide enough detailed information, contact the chemical manufacturer directly. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm. It should be purchased in small quantities suitable for use in six to twelve months and checked periodically for lack of hydration. Use fresh—immerse few seconds to a minute.

HNO3 adtm be increased to 30 mL in methanol only depending on alloy. Pure Be Be alloys Chromium Base: Add 2 drops of HCl just before using.
The deposition is conducted inside a vacuum evaporator of the type used to prepare replicas for electron microscopy. Observe printed s407 on reagent bottles.
Immerse 30 s—3 min. A light pre-etch with a general-purpose chemical etchant may lead to sharper delineation of the structure after tint etching.
Additionally, it is recommended that a calcium gluconate 2 cream or other appropriate HF neutralizing agent be available for use if direct skin contact of the etchant occurs. Rinse with ethanol or methanol and blow dry.
To mix, add the HCl to CrO3.

Precaution—Also poisonous by ingestion as well as skin contact. Use Al, Pb, or stainless steel cathode. NOTE 2—Electrolytic etchants are italicized. Precaution—Properly discard before solution attains a dark orange color.
