Climate Corrosion Test Cycle (VW/Audi)
This standard specifies a test method to determine the corrosion resistance of automotive condensers, water radiators and inter-coolers made of aluminium alloys. It is cyclic in nature, i.e.; test specimens are exposed to changing climates over time.
Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber (a separate salt mist chamber and controlled temperature/humidity chamber are generally used), and exposed to a changing climate that comprises of the following 2 cycles. 5 days exposure to the corrosion test cycle specified in P-VW 1210. This is followed by 2 days exposure to the alternating climate cycle specified in P-VW 1200. The number of cycle repeats and therefore the test duration is variable.
Please see elsewhere in this document for details of P-VW 1210 & P-VW 1200.
This is a VW/Audi test standard.
