My name is Jeroen Prins. I'm from Holland and I want to find out more about the SO2-test. Especially the reactions which take place on an coated and chromated surface. The substrate whe are using are different aluminium alloys.

I'm also interested in learning a bit more about this test. I'm familiar with salt spray, CASS, and cyclic tests, but not SO2. A few people at a meeting I went to are interested in looking at using it to test power-steering parts.

It is called - Kesternik test. Once it was a popular test but since SO2 in air has tight restriction, it is seldom required.
