Finishing with a sealer , T2, can provide an improvement in corrosion protection . This applies to both time to white rust and metal corrosion .
The table refers to surface treatment on racks of reference plates.
Treatment of the drum may lead to slightly lower values .
Testing in neutral salt spray, NSS, should only be used as verification of process .
This nomenclature standard aims to complement and clarifying the standards laid EN ISO 2061 and EN 147000.
In cases where the issues listed in EN ISO 2061 and EN 147000 are not addressed in this standard it applies to both standards listed requirements.
Converting layer containing chromates , hexavalent chromium . This type of treatment does not meet the requirements of the RoHS and ELV .
Converting layer which is free of hexavalent chromium . May contain trivalent chromium .

Descriptions of chromating and passivation

Containing hexavalent chromium

C1 Blue, glossy chromate , decorative finish
C2 Yellow chromate
C3 Green chromating
C4 black chromating

Free of hexavalent chromium
P1 Blue, bright passivation , decorative finish
P2 Yellow passivation
P3 Green passivation ( for future use )
P4 black passivation
P5 Transparent, isiserande passivation

( T0 No finishing )
T1 Varnish
T2 organic or inorganic sealer
T3 organ of vision dye
T4 grease, oil, etc.
T5 Wax
