Salt Spray – Salt Fog Corrosion Testing

global foundries amd

A salt spray or salt fog test is corrosion resistance testing performed in high-saline environments to measure the resistance of products, paints, and coatings toward corrosion over a prolonged time. Salt fog corrosion testing is done in a closed chamber under a variety of corrosive environments.


Salt Spray (Salt Fog) Corrosion Testing Services

Salt spray or salt fog testing is an accelerated corrosion test done in the laboratory to assess the performance of a product or material during its service life. It is a preferred method to evaluate the corrosion resistance of finished surfaces, paints, protective coatings, and other products in testing labs. Specialty testing chambers that simulate high salinity and high humidity conditions are used. Specific testing parameters like salinity, time of exposure, humidity, temperature depending on the type of sample, industry standards, and other client specifications. Typically 5% NaCl solution is used for testing. However, specialty testing might be done with synthetic seawater, CaCl2, acetic acid, etc. Combined temperature tests are also performed at varying levels of test conditions. Specimens are analyzed intermittently throughout the test to record the effect of corrosion through imaging and other characterization tools.

Corrosion experts at Infinita Lab assist our clients based in the USA and other countries across the globe in choosing the most appropriate test method for multiple coating types, including electroplated copper-nickel-chromium, and anodized aluminum. Our testing lab supports salt spray tests for a variety of products. We help you ensure that your projects are accurate, timely, and cost-effective.
