ASTM D2649 Anodized Aluminum Test Panels
Aluminum test panels used in ASTM D2649 (Corrosion Characteristics of Solid Film Lubricants). The test panels are made of 2024 aluminum and measure 3" x 6" x 0.020". The test panels are anodized in accordance with ASTM D1730 Type C Method 2 before testing. Two panels (one coated with the test film lubricant) are assembled at a 90° angle inside an aluminum channel and are fixed in place for the duration of the test. Two more panels (both uncoated) are also assembled and included in the test as a check on the test panel condition. Metaspec provides these test panels with a premium as rolled surface finish or with the ASTM D1730 coating (inquire for availability). Customized test panels are available on request.
