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 A I. The method does not prescribe the type of test specimen or exposure 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 I-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.
