This study is a key reason why GMP became popular as an accelerated laboratory corrosion test for steel. In recent years GMP has been replaced by. of the reference specimens in the as-received condition are in Figure 3. The salt fog test used an abbreviated procedure (Table 3) of the standard GMP test.

In recent years GMP has been replaced by its successor; GMW, but this is all but identical in terms of the test conditions required. If the actual mass loss does not coincide with the targeted values listed in Table 2 the test should be repeated. A cycle normally requires 1 day to complete. Water fog or visible water droplets on parts – continuous after equilibrium is reached.

The test is generally made up of 3 95400p Test Conditions The test consists of alternating wet and dry cycles with precisely prepared salt solution.

GM P Cyclic Accelerated Corrosion Analysis of Nonchromate Conversion – Google Books

The spray nozzle shall be such that the salt solution is atomized into a mist as required. However, thicker coupon sizes should be used for tests with long durations. Originally developed by General Motors the standard has gained popularity for corrosion tests within the automotive industry and has also become the preferred corrosion test of the US Navy. At the end of test the samples shall be rinsed with fresh tap water and allowed to dry before evaluating.

The ambient shift can be modified to include additional test inputs such as dust, grit sprays, mechanical cycling, electrical cycling, thermal inputs, grayelometer and acid rain spray. The coupons serve to monitor the average general bare steel corrosion produced by the test environment. Contact Ascott for Further Information. Figure 1 shows a completed coupon rack configuration.

Typical Application Originally developed by General Motors the standard has gained popularity for corrosion tests within the automotive industry and has also become the preferred corrosion test of the US Navy.


Ambient Soak 8 h. Wipe the coupons free of grit and weigh to determine the coupon mass loss using the formula: To check test progress and assure that the test is being run correctly, assume a linear corrosion rate.

Test specimens in the enclosed chamber are exposed to a changing climate that generally comprises of the following 3 part repeating cycle variations to this cycle are permitted depending on the type of component under test — refer to the full test standard for further guidance. A phase is made up of a predetermined number of cycles, 8 cycles constitute 1 phase.

Additional options can be customized to specific components or subsystems to increase the ability to conduct validation or development testing. This method may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. A cycle is made up of the daily events or test inputs prescribed in Table 4.

This method also includes measurement of corrosion creepback from a scribe line, and describes how to evaluate corrosion formation in unscribed areas. One 1 test cycle is equal to 24 h, 1 phase is equal to 8 cycles. Coupons consist of This procedure supersedes any old procedures that may have referenced an “A” or “B” Test Method Method A is eliminated.

The dryoff environment area shall be maintained with sufficient air circulation to prevent temperature stratification, and also allow thorough drying of the material.

Though believed to be accurate at the time of writing, this may change over time. Hm website has been developed with modern browsers in mind to allow 95440p to display at its best in a wide variety of viewing situations – including mobile viewing. The coupon mass loss values shown in Table 2 are used to verify that the correct amount of corrosion 95440p been produced by the test.

Please note The test standard summaries are for general guidance only. The temperature and humidity conditions are shown in Table 3. Ramp time is to be included as part of the specified exposure period. Repeat the cycle daily as necessary until the test duration requirements are met.


The humidity cabinet shall be as specified by GMP and Table 3. To analyze coupons remove 1 coupon from each end of the rack 5940p prepare for weighing and mass loss determination. It is the responsibility of the user of this method to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Coupon mass loss targets for every phase are not included in Table 2. Test durations A and B can be used as both QC tests and validation tests depending on the purpose of the test. If gravelometer exposure is required, test samples not coupons may be exposed to gravelometer testing per GMP before or during exposure.

Hudson Sprayer, Hudson Mfg. Corrosion coupons shall be removed and analyzed after each phase throughout the test to monitor the corrosion.

Both are excellent browsers. This method does not propose to address all the safety problems associated with its use. Website design by Peter Bourne Communications. Garden dusters from the following manufacturers could 9540l modified: 9540pp test sample s shall be inspected for corrosion and photographed at the end of predetermined cycles. The 940p of cycle repeats and therefore the test duration is variable.

The test duration is dictated by the number of test cycles. Use Option IV – for door detents without weatherseal protection Use Option VI – for door detents with weatherseal protection 1 test cycle is equal to 24 h, 1 phase is equal to 8 cycles.

These methods should be used when reporting test results unless stated otherwise on drawings or agreed upon by test requestor and testor.
