This practice covers the evaluation of atmospheric galvanic corrosion of any anodic material that can be made into a wire when in contact with a cathodic material that can be made into a threaded rod.
When certain materials are used for the anode and cathode, this practice has been used to rate the corrosivity of atmospheres.
The wire-on-bolt test was first described in 1955 (1),2 and has since been used extensively with standard materials to determine corrosivity of atmospheres under the names CLIMAT Test (CLassify Industrial and Marine ATmospheres) (2-5) and ATCORR (ATmospheric CORRosivity) (6-9).
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
