The test is suitable for assessing the quality and uniformity of protective coatings.
What is the purpose of corrosion testing?
The purpose of the test is to compare the resistance of test objects of a similar construction to the effects of salt spray.
How long is corrosion testing?
The individual determination must specify one of the following exposure times: 16 hours, 48 hours (2 days), 96 hours (4 days), 168 hours (1 week), 336 hours (2 weeks), 672 hours (4 weeks).
How is corrosion testing performed?
The test item is exposed to the salt mist that is sprayed in the salt mist chamber for a certain period of time. The test item is then examined to see whether anything has changed on the test item, for example rust or other changes.
