  1. Reagents and materials exception:

(1). Clad 7075-T6 aluminum alloy in accordance with QQ-A-250/13 {AMS 4049 or AMS-QQ-A-250/13 optional) (2024-T3 Alclad specimens are neither required nor optional.)

(2)         Bare 7075-T6 aluminum alloy in accordance with QQ-A-250/12 (AMS 4045 or AMS-Q-A-250/12 optional) anodized in accordance with BAC 5019 or MIL­ A-8625, Type I. Anodize shall be sealed. (2024-T3 nonclad specimens are neither required nor optional).

(3)         Distilled or deionized water may be used in place of ASTM F1193, Type IV reagent grade water for control specimens.

(4)         The filter paper may be Whatman No. 5 or equivalent in place of Whatman GFA glass fiber paper.

  1. Procedure exceptions :

(1)         The filter paper strips shall be 1 by 3 inches and shall beplaced inthe center of the sandwiched specimens. .

(2)         Each sandwich specimen shall be held together with waterproof tape, with no more than 1 piece of tape (maximum width 0.75 inch) on each of two opposite edges.

  1. Interpretation of result exceptions :

(1)         Leaching or lightening of the chromate sealed anodize coating shall not be cause for rejection.

(2)         Deposits or residues from the material being tested that are not products of corrosion of the test panel surface shall not be cause for rejection.

(3)             Special procedure for evaluation of fire extinguishing foams and liquids.

(4)         Panels shall have a rating of 1 (no more than 5 percent of the surface area shall be corroded) or better in accordance with ASTM F 1110. The preferred method of determining the corroded area is by using image analysis. Other means approved by the purchaser may be substituted.

(5)        Any corrosion in excess of that shown by the control group shall be cause for rejection.
