ASTM WK88272

Revision of B695-21 Standard Specification for Coatings of Zinc Mechanically Deposited on Iron and Steel


There is currently no guidance for when salt spray testing is valid for determining conformance. This may lead to issues where parts may exist in storage conditions for years after having been plated and subsequently tested for conformance with potential for varying results. Work item intends to add a statement so salt spray testing for the purposes of determining conformance is done soon after coating and before any shipping, sortation, storage, etc.
