    ASTM D130 is the standard method for the determination of the degree of corrosiveness of petroleum products that exhibit a vapor pressure up to 124kPa (37.8 C). It can be applied to natural, automotive and aviation gasoline, aviation turbine fuel, kerosene, diesel fuel, distillate fuel oil, cleaners solvent (Stoddard), lubricant oils and other hydrocarbon fractions falling within the vapor pressure specified limit. A polished copper strip is immersed and heated for a determined time in a predetermined volume of the sample being tested. Heated conditions and time of exposure are specific of the class of material described in the scope. After the heating period the strip is removed washed and the degree of corrosiveness of the sample is assessed by visual comparison of the level of tarnish and color against an appropriate ASTM Copper Strip Corrosion Standard. The proposed revision improves the rating process by a Digital Detection Imaging analysis and removes the subjective visual rating of D130, determining the degree of corrosiveness listed in Table 1 by digitally and integrally identifying exact levels of corrosion in a 4-step automated vision algorithm and classification process using a high-resolution CCD camera with optical intelligence.
