Purpose. The purpose of the fastener rating scale is to allow comparison between vehicles and consistency between personnel. It is important to recognize that rating fastener corrosion involves perception of an objectionable surface and much of the judgment is subjective. The fastener corrosion scales, provide some objective measure that will guide subjective judgment.
Applicability. The Corrosion Rating Scale Guidelines contain corrosion rating scales, rating guidelines, and photographs for the determination of corrosion severity on all vehicular parts, including body and sheet metal, underbody and underhood components, and fasteners. It is intended that the scales are used for both corporate corrosion inspections and field surveys.
Remarks. This fastener rating scale guideline contains four (4) sets of fasteners.
