Failure to meet this 500221 implies instability in the chemical process of the pre-treatment, or the paint quality, which must be addressed immediately, so that the upcoming batches are of the desired quality. The principle application of the salt spray test is therefore enabling quick comparisons to be made between actual and expected corrosion resistance. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions.

Salt Spray Fog Testing Equipment for ASTM B 117 and DIN 50 021

Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, don exposed to a changing climate that comprises the following 3 part repeating cycle. The test duration is variable. Painted surfaces with an underlying hot-dip galvanized coating can be tested according to this method.

Although there may be a weak correlation between the duration in salt spray test and the expected life of a coating in certain coatings such as hot dip galvanized steelthis test has gained worldwide popularity due to low cost and quick results. This test is also referred to as an ASS test. Holly Seppanen – Bloomington, Sin, U. The zinc idn are not produced when a hot-dip galvanized specimen is exposed to a salt spray fog, therefore this testing method does not give an accurate measurement of corrosion protection.

Salt spray tests in accordance with DIN EN ISO NSS / AASS / CASS | IGOS, Solingen

Corrosion tests and standards: You should be able sd purchase the two similar specs and run the test to either standard because you will control the chamber temperature etc. Most commonly, the time taken for oxides to appear on the samples under test is compared to expectations, to determine whether the test is passed or failed. There is a general historical consensus that larger chambers can provide a more dinn testing environment. These acidified test solutions generally have a pH of 3.


Are they both the same standards of different countries and can the same test equipment be used for both of them or shall I need a separate tester individually for each? The number of cycle repeats and therefore the test duration is variable.

Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to 1 of 2 possible changing climate cycles. The concentration of salt in solution is approximately equivalent. Can you advise me of a suitable company that offers these?

All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional 5021 nor the policy of an author’s employer. The appearance of corrosion products rust or other oxides is evaluated after a pre-determined period of time. Requirements are agreed between customer and manufacturer.

Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests

In either case, the exposure to salt spray may be salt water spray or synthetic sea water prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard. This is followed by 1. Synthetic cin solutions are also commonly specified by some companies and standards. Hot-dip galvanizing produces zinc carbonates when exposed to a natural environment, thus protecting the coating metal and reducing the corrosion rate.

This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion paints on steelwhen exposed to a changing climate of dilute salt spray at ambient 500021, followed by air drying at and elevated temperature. ASTM G85 is an example of a test standard which contains several modified salt spray tests which are variations to the basic salt spray test. The salt spray or salt fog test is a standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to check corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings.

Usually, the materials to be tested are metallic although stone, ceramics, and polymers may also be tested and finished with a surface coating which is intended to provide a degree of corrosion protection to the underlying metal. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages.


Variations to the salt spray test solutions depend upon 50201 materials to be tested. Salt spray testing is popular because it is relatively inexpensive, quick, well standardized, and reasonably repeatable.

You can even run it to the EES variant. The second climate cycle comprises 0. Salt spray testing is an accelerated corrosion test that produces a corrosive attack to coated samples in order to evaluate mostly comparatively the suitability of the coating for use as a protective finish.

This is followed by 2. Chamber volumes vary from supplier to supplier. So the tests are quite similar with the exception of the EES variant. Electroplated zinc-nickel steel parts can last more than hours in NSS test without red rust or 48 hours in CASS test without red rust Requirements are established in test duration hours and coatings shall comply with minimum testing periods.

If there is a minimum volume required by a particular salt spray test standard, this will be clearly stated and should be complied with. The companies that sell salt fog equipment should be able to tell you if their equipment complies with the German spec; I know that it complies with ASTM B ASTM does not address this issue, but ISO does not recommend it and if it is to be done, advocates a thorough cleaning. This 500221 can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of dij or uncoated aluminium alloys and other metals, when exposed to a changing climate of acidified synthetic seawater spray, followed by a high humidity, both at an elevated temperature.

Results are represented generally as testing hours in NSS without appearance of corrosion products e.
