Corrosion Testing

The need to produce corrosion testing failures that more closely corresponded with actual field results spurred industry research for a new corrosion testing method. The result of this research was the development of the cyclic corrosion test. A variety of versions of the test have been developed, but they all generally involve cycling the chamber environment between moist and dry conditions.

The salt fog test (or neutral salt spray test) has been used for over 70 years to measure the corrosion resistance of plated or coated metal parts. A large database of testing experience has been accumulated regarding the response of these protective systems to this standardized corrosive environment.

We can perform both the traditional neutral salt fog and the more recent cyclic corrosion test. Cyclic corrosion can be performed either manually or with automatic cycling.
