|ASTM G188-05(2017) - 1.11.2017|
|Significance and Use|
6.1 Leak detector solutions may cause stress corrosion cracking of different alloys. If a leak detector solution is found to cause stress corrosion cracking in accordance with Test Method , it should not be used on brasses or other copper alloys. If a leak detector solution is found not to cause stress corrosion cracking in accordance with Test Method , it may cause stress corrosion cracking of copper or other alloys under unspecified conditions.
1.1 This specification covers the requirements for leak detector solutions suitable for use in checking the leakage of valves, pipes, fittings, joints, and so forth of a pressurized gas system fabricated from brasses and other copper alloys.
1.2 This specification deals with the stress corrosion cracking aspect of leak detector solutions. The effectiveness, chemical, physical and mechanical properties of leak detector solutions are not within the scope of this specification.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
