Test Method: ISO 11474:1998 Accelerated Outdoor SCAB Test.

Test Site: Marine, 150 um/yr., 5.9 mills/yr. (S.F. Bay)

Status: Test started 9/1/08 at 6:00 pm. (RH 32%, 85F)

             Each engraved test plate received a generous application of

             the appropriate rust protection product.

            The test plates were then inclined at the specified 5 degrees.

            The Weatherpruf product stained the plastic table cloth with an

            amber/orange stain and may not be acceptable where staining

            may be a concern. None of the other products caused a stain.

            A light saline spray will be applied to the test plates four times

            per week.
