A. Hey Christa,

Kesternich: German scientist who developed the Kesternich Cabinet and test method used for acid rain simulation (DIN 50018 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet]).

U.S. INTEC, Inc. tests their Roofing and Building Fasteners using the Kesternich test. Talk to the tech people at U.S. INTEC, Inc. Port Arthur, Texas.

Hope this helps,

A. Hello Soobhankar.
Kesternich testing is a common name for sulfur dioxide testing. There are several test methods available. DIN 50018 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet], ISO 3231 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet], and ASTM G87 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] are some of the more common methods.
