Copper Accelerated Acetic Acid Salt Spray Test (Fiat)
Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of inorganic chemical and electrolytic coatings on metallic parts, when exposed to a copper accelerated acetic acid salt spray climate at an elevated temperature.
Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of acidified (pH 3.1to 3.3) salt water solution, which falls-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1.0 to 2.0ml/80cm²/hour, in a chamber temperature of +50C. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. The test duration is variable.
This is a Fiat test standard.
