Salt spray (or salt fog or salt mist) testing is carried out on products, materials and coatings to assess their resistance to corrosion. It is widely used to prove the resistance to corrosion of surface coatings such as powder coating or zinc plating.
We carry out salt spray testing using both continuous spray and cyclic test processes.
Corrosion testing is vital in determining suitability and service life for both individual components and complete products and assemblies. We simulate environmental conditions including extreme conditions of damp, dry, hot and cold. Temperature and humidity testing can also be a stand-alone test.
Test durations and the schedules within cyclical testing are often set by individual product standards or end users. If you need to put your product through specific proving, our highly experienced test engineers will work with you to create durations and cycle patterns to meet your specific requirements.
If your product or component has a marine sector application we create salt laden environments as detailed in marine standards and by some specialist specifications.
Test programmes can also include
Accelerated weather (UV) testing (Xenon arc testing)
Salt spray testing standards:
BS EN IEC 60068-2-11 Salt Mist Testing
