    Significance and Use

    3.1 The procedure described is used to observe the behavior of steels under exposure conditions that retard the formation of a protective type of rust. It is also used to evaluate seal coat on insulation.

    3.2 This practice should not be used to rank steels that form a protective type of rust under atmospheric exposure conditions.

    1. Scope
