1.1 This test method covers the means of determining the corrosive effects of "metal cleaners for use in mechanical equipment," on all metals other than aluminum and its alloys, under conditions of aeration and total immersion, by quantitative measurement of weight change or by qualitative visual determination of change. The test is designed for the determination of the effects of the cleaner on metals being cleaned and is not for determination of the life of the cleaner or of the containing equipment.
1.2 When the test is used to assist in the choice of material for a specific use, the test conditions should simulate the conditions of use as closely as practicable.
1.3 Where no further processing subsequent to cleaning is indicated, a test for the effect of residual cleaner on the corrosion behavior of the material may be required.
1.4 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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.> Material Safety Data Sheets are available for reagents and materials. Review them for hazards prior to usage.
