Corrosion Testing Standards

The test standard summaries are for general guidance only. Though believed to be accurate at the time of writing, this may change over time. So this information should not be used as a substitute for referring to a complete test standard, at an appropriate revision level.

Note: the terms salt spray, salt mist and salt fog are all in wide spread use within corrosion test standards. In this context they can be considered to be equivalent and interchangeable terms.

AA-0213 (AA-P 224)

Condensation Water Constant Atmosphere Test

This test serves to evaluate the resistance of automotive coatings and painted hang-on parts to high humidity. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to constant conditions of +40°C and constant condensation humidity level of c.100% RH.

In all other respects this test is based upon DIN EN ISO 6270-2 KK.
