Description of ASTM-B117 2011
ASTM B117 - 11
Standard Practice for Operating Salt Spray (Fog) Apparatus
Active Standard ASTM B117 | Developed by Subcommittee: G01.05
Book of Standards Volume: 03.02
Significance and Use
This practice provides a controlled corrosive environment which has been utilized to produce relative corrosion resistance information for specimens of metals and coated metals exposed in a given test chamber.
Prediction of performance in natural environments has seldom been correlated with salt spray results when used as stand alone data.
Correlation and extrapolation of corrosion performance based on exposure to the test environment provided by this practice are not always predictable.
Correlation and extrapolation should be considered only in cases where appropriate corroborating long-term atmospheric exposures have been conducted.
The reproducibility of results in the salt spray exposure is highly dependent on the type of specimens tested and the evaluation criteria selected, as well as the control of the operating variables. In any testing program, sufficient replicates should be included to establish the variability of the results. Variability has been observed when similar specimens are tested in different fog chambers even though the testing conditions are nominally similar and within the ranges specified in this practice.
1.1 This practice covers the apparatus, procedure, and conditions required to create and maintain the salt spray (fog) test environment. Suitable apparatus which may be used is described in Appendix X1.
1.2 This practice does not prescribe the type of test specimen or exposure periods to be used for a specific product, nor the interpretation to be given to the results.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
