ASTM ASTM B117 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is a standard for conducting salt spray testing. ASTM B633 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is the standard for electroplated zinc coatings. You can obtain both of these standards directly from ASTM by going to their website. FYI, ISO 2081 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is equivalent to ASTM B-633 and ISO 9227 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is equivalent to ASTM B-117.Toby Padfield

What are the aesthetic standards for pre-plated Zinc on CRS? Our supplier has given us many pieces that are darker on one portion and much lighter on others. Other pieces look blotchy.Mike Kovacich
