Salt spray testing is a general qualitative technique used to evaluate metal surface protective coatings. Since salt spray testing simulates the effects of several types of corrosion, it was felt that a wedding of the techniques used in measuring such corrosion with radioisotopic techniques might prove fruitful in making the salt spray test more quantitative. The report deals with the uses of radioisotopes to study corrosion mechanisms, corrosion rates, surface phenomena, etc., and can provide a point of departure for launching an investigation into quantitative salt spray testing.
