Salt Spray Test
Salt Spray Testing Services in Manitoba, BC, Toronto, Canada
Salt Spray or Salt Fog test is primarily used to check the corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings on painted, metal, and coated metals which are supposed to provide a degree of corrosion protection.
INTL Inc. test chambers create high-saline environments by artificially simulating salt spray environmental conditions via accelerated time and salt exposure to the specimens.
Test duration of the salt spray depends on the material or product being tested or mutually agreed upon by the manufacturer. If the material or coating is corrosion resistant, then the test time should be longer without showing signs of oxidation. Once the salt exposure cycle is complete, the appearance of corrosion (oxides) on the specimens is visually examined by our engineers.
Once the corrosion information is determined from the samples, manufacturers can decide what kind of conformal coatings or paints to apply to prevent corrosion on the metallic surface.
