Standard Practice for Salt-Accelerated Outdoor Cosmetic Corrosion Testing of Organic Coatings on Automotive Sheet Steel
|Publication Date:||10 May 2001|
|ICS Code (Bodies and body components):||43.040.60|
This practice is designed to assist procedures to be followed when conducting outdoor exposures to evaluate cosmetic corrosion that might occur in steel panels covered with an organic coating that has been damaged. The outdoor exposures described are based on Practice G7 and include periodic wetting of the test specimens with a salt solution.
The methods of preparing test specimens and the particular exposure requirements of materials are beyond the scope of this practice.
