The principle of the method is immersing a coated test panel in water and evaluating the effects of immersion by criteria agreed in advance between the interested parties, these criteria usually being of a subjective nature. The method gives an indication of the results likely to be obtained when painted articles are stored under conditions where prolonged condensation but not an extremely corrosive atmosphere may be produced. Applies to a single-coat film or multi-coat system of paints.
