Participation Sought To Standardize Equipment Requirements for Salt Spray Chamber Test

A Salt Spray Chamber Specification Task Group has formed under ASTM Subcommittee G01.05 on Laboratory Corrosion Tests to define the type of equipment needed to properly perform ASTM B 117, Standard Practice for Operating Salt Spray (Fog) Apparatus. “Users of B 117 will benefit from this standard because the equipment requirements will be more standardized and hopefully eliminate some of the variables found in salt spray testing,” said Subcommittee Chairman Cindy Meade, National Exposure Testing, Ohio.

The task group, led by Frank Lutze, ACT Laboratories, Mich., will hold its initial meeting next month when ASTM Committee G01 on Corrosion convenes in Phoenix, Ariz. Participation is invited from the paint and coatings, automotive, and aerospace industries, test equipment manufacturers, and independent testing laboratories, and other interested parties.

To participate, or for further technical information, contact Frank Lutze, ACT Laboratories, Hillsdale, Mich., (phone: 517/439-1492; fax: 517/439-1652) or Cindy Meade, National Exposure Testing, Sylvania, Ohio (phone: 419/ 841-1065). Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals meets May 9-11 in Phoenix, Ariz. For meeting or membership details, contact G01 Staff Manager Bruce Noe, ASTM (phone: 610/832-9719). //
