1.1 This guide has been written specifically for coil-coated metal building products. 1.2 This guide applies to preparation and rating of line-coated and laboratory-coated test panels for the purpose of comparing and ranking corrosion resistance and other related properties. 1.3 Testing may include accelerated tests and outdoor exposure tests. 1.4 SI units are used throughout this standard. 1.5 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.
Corrosion test panels are currently prepared and rated in a variety of ways that make it difficult to compare results across a broad spectrum of substrates, pretreatments, and coatings. As the industry anticipates future regulation related to anti-corrosive pigments, comparative testing of new products will be vital for identification of the best candidates.
