Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Introduction

This document deals with environmental parameters for the characterization of indoor atmospheres

and methods of measurement.

The environmental parameters for the characterization of indoor atmospheres include more airborne

contaminants than are normally used for the characterization of the outdoor environment.

Measurement of environmental parameters is a way of characterizing the corrosivity of the indoor

atmosphere and will always be required if it is necessary to consider measures for reducing the

corrosivity.

4 Principle

Different combinations of parameters affect the corrosivity of indoor atmospheres. Knowledge about

possible sources of environmental effects shall be obtained before decisions regarding the type

of measurements needed are taken. The characterization of indoor atmospheric corrosivity using

environmental parameters is more complicated than measuring the corrosivity with metal specimens.

However, in many cases, the measurement of environmental parameters can give a good indication of

how to establish the corrosivity of an environment and will, in combination with the information given

in ISO 11844-1, give a good indication of the corrosivity categories for the materials in the select

5 Environmental parameters

In indoor atmospheres, corrosion processes are characterised by a more complex group of parameters

than in outdoor atmospheres. In general, two groups of parameters should be measured:

— humidity and temperature;

— airborne contaminants, such as gases and particles, which in turn are affected by;

— dry deposition velocity and air flow.

Fluctuation in the temperature and humidity, particularly at higher humidity levels, may cause

condensation on cooler surfaces. The frequency and time of condensation is an important factor for

indoor corrosion.

The corrosion effects from these groups of parameters are usually interdependent. A particular level of

humidity is needed before corrosion begins, and this can vary for different contaminants. Combinations

of contaminants might accelerate the corrosion processes.

Methods for sampling and analysis of various air pollutants in indoor atmospheres are described in the

ISO 16000 series. Of specific relevance is ISO 16000‑1, which describes a general measurement strategy

for measuring indoor air pollution and specific standards for mea
