R is rounded off to the nearest whole number, leading to the tabulation given in Table 1. Print 1 2 3 4 5 page sstarting from page current page.

For example, if a panel rates as low as 4 for protection, it may be difficult to assess any additional appearance defects. Panels shall be assigned separate rating numbers based on the ability of the coating to protect the substrate from corrosion protection ratingand the overall appearance of panels as affected by deterioration of the coating itself appearance rating.

Accordingly, this practice assigns separate ratings to 1 appearance as affected by corrosion of the substrate and 2 appearance as affected by deterioration of the coating itself. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

Current edition approved Oct. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. It has been used also for rating similar panels that have been subjected to accelerated tests such as those covered by Practice B, Method B, Test Method B, and Test Method B Content only available by subscription.

Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. Corrosion pits probably not extending through to the basis metal—that is absence of obvious basis metal corrosion products bleeding therefrom.

If dirt, salt deposits, and so forth, make it impractical to inspect them, panels may be sponged with a mild soap solution followed by water rinse; but no pressure should be exerted in this procedure such as would tend to upgrade the rating by, for example, cleaning off rust b573 rust stain. Inspection should be made in the as-is condition, and defects to be taken into account are only those that can be seen with the unaided eye at normal reading distance.


Are you sure you want to empty the cart? This practice covers the recommended method for rating the condition of electroplated test panels subjected to corrosive environments for test purposes.

Similarly contact and rack marks, mounting holes, and so forth, should be disregarded. If there are surface defects not accounted for in the protection rating, the appearance rating will be one or more units lower than the protection rating.
