ASTM G85 Standard Practice for Modified Salt Spray (Fog) Testing

As an improvement to the original salt spray test, the modified salt spray (fog) testing (ASTM G85) has introduced 5 modifications to the standard salt fog test:

  • continuous acetic acid-salt spray test
  • cyclic acidified salt spray test
  • cyclic sea water acidified test
  • cyclic SO2 salt spray test
  • dilute electrolyte cyclic fog dry test

Among these modifications, the dilute electrolyte cyclic fog dry test was reported to give better correlation with outdoor exposure test. This procedure uses a much diluted electrolyte (0.05% sodium chloride) with small amount (0.35%) of  ammonium sulphate to represent industrial atmospheres. The test cycle alternates between 1 hour of fog and 1 hour of dry-off. During each drying-off cycle, the salt concentration would progressively increase thus exposing the samples to a wider range of salt concentrations.
