This International Standard gives a method of evaluating the condition of decorative and protective metallic and inorganic coated panels or articles which have been exposed to corrosive environments for test or for other purposes.
It is applicable to test panels or components exposed to natural atmospheres, in mobile or static conditions, or subjected to accelerated tests.
NOTE 1 Examples of such tests are given in the Bibliography.
This International Standard recognizes that the protection rating can be assessed objectively in accordance with clause 6. However, the assessment of appearance depends on many subjective factors (see 6.2).
NOTE 2 The edges of test panels or components may be protected, e.g. by tape or wax (paraffin), if this is an agreed part of the test and is recorded in the test report. This is essential if the specimens are cut from larger pieces and have exposed uncoated edges.
