This test is commonly employed on protective coated products. AS 2331.3.1 and ASTM B117 specifies particular testing requirements for salt spray test.

Coatings are exposed to a corrosive atmosphere under controlled conditions for different durations.

Resistance to corrosive attack is used to assess the quality of the coating against the conditions of the test.
