Description / Abstract:

This method sets forth the conditions required in salt spray (fog) testing for specification purposes. Suitable apparatus which may be used to obtain these conditions is described in Appendix A1. The method does not prescribe the type of test specimen or expo sure periods to be used for a specific product, nor the interpretation to be given to the results. Comments on the use of the test in research will be found in Appendix A2.

NOTE 1 - This method is applicable to salt spray (fog) testing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and is also used to test inorganic and organic coatings, etc., especially where such tests are the basis for material or product specifications.
