Stress-corrosion cracking of sensitized Type 304 steel in low temperature borated water has been observed. The probable role of low levels of chloride ions or sulfur-containing ions is described including the relationship to polythionic acid cracking. The mechanism of sulfur-induced cracking and its usefulness as a test for sensitization are outlined.
