Corrosion testing

Corrosion tests are accelerated tests to determine coated and uncoated metals’ reactions in saline and non-saline conditions. There are several types of tests according to international standards. Check out the common tests.

Corrosion testing methods

  • Salt Spray Testing: This is the standard and commonest method for checking coated and non-coated materials’ corrosion resistance. It involves spraying the materials with a saltwater solution and evaluating the appearance of the oxide.
  • CASS Exposure Testing: This is an aggressive corrosion testing for aluminum alloys and chromium plating on zinc and steel materials. It involves exposing the material to Copper Accelerated Acetic Acid Salt Spray. Furthermore, the test can be functional or aesthetical, determining the exposure time (not more than 48 hours).
  • Immersion Corrosion Testing: Immersion corrosion testing involves immersing a material in an aggressive, aqueous environment. Afterward, analytical methods are used to determine the loss in weight due to corrosion.
