    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the evaluation of atmospheric galvanic corrosion of any anodic material that can be made into a wire when in contact with a cathodic material that can be made into a threaded rod.

    1.2 When certain materials are used for the anode and cathode, this practice has been used to rate the corrosivity of atmospheres.

    1.3 The wire-on-bolt test was first described in 1955 (1), and has since been used extensively under the name CLIMAT Test (CLassify Industrial and Marine ATmospheres) to determine corrosivity of atmospheres (2-4).

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
