50180 method A2

Acetic Acid Salt Spray Test (Fiat)

Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of inorganic chemical and electrolytic coatings on metallic parts when exposed to an acetic acid salt spray climate at an elevated temperature.

Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of acidified (pH 3.1to 3.3) salt water solution, which falls-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1.0 to 2.0ml/80cm²/hour, in a chamber temperature of +35C. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. The test duration is variable.

This is a Fiat test standard.

50180 method A3

Copper Accelerated Acetic Acid Salt Spray Test (Fiat)

Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of inorganic chemical and electrolytic coatings on metallic parts, when exposed to a copper accelerated acetic acid salt spray climate at an elevated temperature.

Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of acidified (pH 3.1to 3.3) salt water solution, which falls-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1.0 to 2.0ml/80cm²/hour, in a chamber temperature of +50C. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. The test duration is variable.

This is a Fiat test standard.

50180 method A1

Salt Spray Test (Fiat)

Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of inorganic and organic coatings on metallic substrates, when exposed to a salt spray climate at an elevated temperature.

Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of neutral (pH 6.5 to 7.2) salt water solution, which falls-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1.0 to 2.0ml/80cm²/hour, in a chamber temperature of +35C. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. The test duration is variable.

This is a Fiat test standard.
