STIMULATE REAL-TIME WEATHER CONDITIONS TO EVALUATE SURFACE COATING
Salt spray testing assesses the durability of finishes and coatings on metal surfaces. The test is carried out in a highly corrosive atmosphere. This helps to evaluate the impact of different exposure conditions, such as humidity and temperature, on a coating’s ability to resist corrosion.
PTS performs salt spray (fog) testing, which involves exposing materials in an enclosed salt spray chamber to simulate a standardized corrosive environment to produce corrosion resistance information.
This test can be used to access a wide range of materials & forms, such as base metals, surface coatings and paints, and conditions can be varied according to the specific environmental conditions required.
The salt spray test is widely used for products designed for use in the automotive, offshore, marine and militarily.
Application of Salt Spray Testing:
An accelerated corrosive attack is produced to predict better how well the coating protects the metal
To measure the corrosion resistance of products, paints and coatings over extended periods
Test duration is relatively short compared to the expected service life in the natural environment
