KIscc testing

Using rapid and inexpensive methods based on ASTM F1624, NanoSolutions can provide valid KISCC values in a few weeks using Charpy sized SEN(B) specimens.  KIscc testing requires only 5 Single Edge Notched (SEN) square bar or Notched Round Bar (NRB) specimens. 

Using a loading rate dependent on the hardness, KISCC can be measured by putting the sample (submerged in a cathodic environment) under stress per ASTM F 1624 to achieve a threshold stress intensity value.  Testing typically requires a few days per specimen.  KISCC per ASTM E1681 can require up to ten thousand hours to provide the same result.
