... but no failure after 42 days of exposure to NaNO3 + Ca(NO3)2 solution. None of the cupro-nickel specimens failed, but among those exposed to NH4NO3, 17% displayed crack initiation and 83% showed partial dealloying after 42 days. Based on the test results, the fuse material was changed from nickel silver to cupro...
