Sorry, I don't have those standards handy. Assuming you do, how many hours are they looking for? Certainly there are a number of coatings that will pass salt spray tests, electroless nickel or powder coating, for example.

You can try out Arcor process process for better salt sparay test. Actually I don't know the standards you have specified. But in general MS material, after Arcor processing it will with stand from 150 to 200 Hrs. I am working in tribology India ltd, hosur. arumugam
