Resistance to Solvents Testing (RTS)
Sample(s) from each lot/date code are tested for evidence of remarking or resurfacing. Industry standard resistance to solvents test methods (see SAE AS6081/AS6171, MIL-STD-202, Method 215, and JESD22-B107D) are performed to reveal any forged markings, coatings applied to disguise sanding marks, and other indications that the original device marking has been removed or covered. Testing includes 3:1 Marking Permanency Test, Acetone, 1-Methly 2-Pyrrolidinone and Dynasolve 750 tests.
(Note: Destructive Tests, except 3:1 Test) AAA recommends 3 samples from each lot be subjected to the entire battery of solvent tests.
