    Significance and Use

    Many aircraft maintenance chemicals are used on components and structures which would be adversely affected by excessive dimensional change. This practice screens these chemicals to ensure compliance with specified weight change criteria.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the determination of the corrosiveness of aircraft maintenance chemicals on aircraft metals with time under conditions of total immersion by a combination of weight change measurements and visual qualitative determination of change.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values 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.
