First used in 1914, the salt fog test is still the most widely applied corrosion test, however, it is often misused and misapplied. This ASTM course will provide a clear understanding of the proper application of ASTM B117, Standard Practice for Operating Salt Spray (Fog) Apparatus, and will furnish information regarding corrosion testing in general so that attendees can understand the significance of the salt fog test. Participants will learn how to properly operate salt fog apparatus; the “whys” and “hows” of salt fog testing; and will gain valuable hands-on experience. Demonstrations will also be given on mixing solutions, cleaning coupons and samples, evaluation of results and samples, and ASTM B117 corrosion test equipment. The course is intended for corrosion technicians, product test personnel, laboratory supervisors, and users of B 117.
