    Significance and Use

    This practice not only provides information on the accumulated effects of corrosion at specific time periods under a given set of conditions, but also provides information on the initial rate of corrosion of virgin metal, the corrosion rate of metal per unit time after long exposure, and the initial corrosion rate of virgin metal after long exposure of the corroding fluid to metal. The test also provides a means of determining the direction corrosion will take with time, although causes for increase or decrease in the corrosiveness and corrodibility of media and metal (such as passive film formation or destruction, depletion of corrosive contaminate, and so forth) as a function of time are not given.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the determination of the corrosiveness of tank-type aircraft maintenance chemicals on aircraft metals and the corrodibility of metals in these maintenance chemicals with time. The determination is made under conditions of total immersion by a combination of weight change measurements and visual qualitative determinations of change.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 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. For specific precautions, see Section 6.
