Tests were modeled after those established by the U.S. Department of Defense under MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-130. Chemicals
tested include all MIL-STD-810G fluids and several others (see the Technical Brief for a full list). Outcomes were measured
with a Siemens/Microscan verifier on 15mil 2D barcodes. A drop of more than two letter grades indicates failure –
as per AIM DPM-1-2006 and MIL-STD-130N.
