Standard Test Method for Corrosion of Low-Embrittling Zinc-Nickel Plate by Aircraft Maintenance Chemicals

Significance and Use

3.1 The data generated by this test method shall be used to determine whether low embrittling zinc-nickel plated parts are liable to be corroded or damaged by application of the test material during routine maintenance operations.


1.1 This test method is intended as a means of determining the corrosive effects of aircraft maintenance chemicals on low-embrittling zinc-nickel plating used on aircraft high-strength steel, under conditions of total immersion by quantitative measurements of weight change. Aircraft maintenance chemicals requiring this test method shall be determined by the cognizant engineering authority.

1.2 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see Section 6 and 4.1.
