    As part of a comprehensive study of the corrosion and corrosion testing of non-ferrous metals and alloys, outdoor exposure tests were initiated in 1931 by Subcommittee VI on Atmospheric Corrosion of A.S.T.M. Committee B-3 on Corrosion of Non-Ferrous Metals and Alloys. The intent of the work was to evaluate the metals under test and simultaneously to study two alternative test procedures. As the work progressed, it became increasingly evident that only by preparing a most voluminous report could the subcommittee hope to present a complete evaluation of their findings. Upon completion of the 10-yr. exposures, decision was reached to present only the actual data in the report of the committee as a whole and to have a series of analyses of the tests and results prepared by members of the subcommittee. The present discussion covers the results obtained with three grades of rolled zinc: metals AA, BB, and HH.
