The performance is regulated by various international standards, including DIN EN ESO 9227, ASTM B117 and DIN 53167 (specifically for the paint sector).

Finely sprayed sodium chloride solutions of different compositions (depending on the sample; acetic acid can also be added to set a pH value of 3.2) act on the test surface for likewise different durations. Both intact specimens and damaged pieces are subjected to the test, which is usually carried out at a temperature of 35 degrees C. The test is carried out at a temperature of 35 degrees C.
