The Hydrogen Induced Cracking phenomenon (HIC) mainly affects carbon and low-alloy steels that work in contact with H2S. The NACE TM0284 standard was created to verify the resistance of steels to hydrogen-induced corrosion. The test specifies how many specimens to take according to item type to be tested and its final thickness. It makes possible to evaluate whether any cracks formed comply with the project specifications. Sider Test has a laboratory dedicated to the study of the phenomenon with the possibility of setting up several tests in parallel in order to optimize and minimize the delivery of the reports necessary to qualify the material. Our technical office is at your complete disposal to provide a quotation based on the design specifications and plan the tests in the shortest possible time.
