1.1 This test method covers the determination of the corrosive effects of water-soluble detergent cleaners on certain porcelain enamels, particularly those used on working surfaces of washing machines and dishwashing machines (Note 1). The test is designed for the determination of corrosion characteristics of the cleaner and not for determination of the life of the cleaner.Note 1-This test method is not intended as a test for the corrosion resistance of porcelain enamels, but for the evaluation of the cleaners. It is further recognized that various porcelain enamels of differing formulations are available with varying degrees of resistance to corrosion attack by detergent cleaners. The evaluation of the detergent under test is in terms of the particular porcelain enamel used in making the test.
1.2 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems 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.> For specific precautionary statement see Note 3. Material Safety Data Sheets are available for reagents amd materials. Review them for hazards prior to usage.
