ACCELERATED LIFE TESTING. Touchstone performs corrosion testing and accelerated life testing of virtually any material or device. Among the tests offered . A SWAAT test will use synthetic sea salt that is acidified instead of sodium chloride. Learn more about Touchstone’s ASTM GA3 corrosion testing services. ASTM G85 Annex 5 (A5) is a cyclic corrosion test that uses a solution of sodium chloride and ammonium sulfate which is much more dilute than traditional salt.

Testing cabinets are g885 according to the specified requirements here. However, these testing standards neither provide information of testing periods for the coatings to be evaluated, nor the appearance of corrosion products in form of salts.
This is followed by 3. The longer the accelerated corrosion test, the longer the process remains out of control, and larger is the loss in the form of non-conforming batches. The type of test chambers used for modified salt spray testing to ASTM G85 are generally similar to the chambers used for testing to ASTM B, but will often have some additional features, such as an automatic climate cycling control system.
The second climate cycle comprises of 0. Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of decorative chromium plating on aztm and zinc based die castings, when exposed to an acetic acid salt spray climate at an elevated temperature. There is a general historical consensus that larger chambers can provide a more homogeneous testing environment. This is considered an out of date browser. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises the following 2 part repeating cycle.
If you are interested in coupon testing, we can prepare and coat the edges, to eliminate edge corrosion. These temperatures are however variable and may be changed to suit the material being testing. Sample preparation and placement: Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, g8 exposed to 1 of 2 possible changing climate astn. This page was last edited on 29 Octoberat For this reason the salt spray test is most often sstm in a quality audit role, where, for example, it can be used to check the effectiveness of atsm production process, such as the aetm coating of a metallic part.
This is followed by 0. Samples are located so condensate from one sample does not drip onto another sample. ASTM G85 annex A2 — cyclic acidified salt spray test Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises of the following 3 part repeating cycle. Other test solutions have other chemicals added including acetic acid often abbreviated to ASS and acetic acid with copper chloride often abbreviated to CASS each one chosen for the evaluation of decorative coatings, such as electroplated copper-nickel-chromium, electroplated copper-nickel or anodized aluminum.
This is followed by 0. Such tests are commonly referred to as modified salt spray tests. Touchstone performs corrosion testing and accelerated life testing of virtually any material or device.
ASTM G85:A4 Salt/SO2 Fog (Spray) Testing
Select from list below: Among the tests offered are:. The number of cycle repeats and therefore the test duration is variable. Although the majority of salt spray tests are continuous, i. Although popular in certain industries, modified salt spray testing has in many cases been superseded by Cyclic corrosion testing CCT The type of environmental test chambers used for modified salt spray testing to ASTM G85 are generally similar to the chambers used for testing to ASTM Bbut will often have some additional features, such as an automatic climate cycling control system.
Additional related tests and analysis: These g58 describe the necessary information to carry out this test; testing parameters such as temperature, air pressure of the sprayed solution, preparation of the spraying solution, concentration, pHetc.
A synthetic sea salt solution made with the addition of glacial acetic acid. This acceleration arises through the use of chemically altered salt spray solutions, often combined with other test climates and aztm most cases, the relatively rapid cycling of these test climates over time.
This test can be used to determine time to perforation primarily on aluminum alloy brazing sheet used to manufacture heat exchangers, or even complete heat exchangers under pressure, or other parts.
This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of aluminium alloys when exposed to a changing climate of acetic acid salt spray, followed by air drying, followed by b85 humidity, all at an elevated temperature.
ASTM G85:A5 Dilute Electrolyte Cyclic Fog/Dry Testing
ASTM G85 annex A1 — Acetic Acid Salt Spray Test non-cyclic This test can be used to determine the relative resistance to corrosion of decorative chromium plating on steel and zinc based die casting when exposed to an acetic acid salt spray climate at an elevated temperature.
These tests have evolved to address the need for a corrosion test capable of replicating the effects of naturally occurring corrosion and accelerate these effects. Cyclic corrosion testing is better suited to this. The salt spray test is one of the most widespread and long established corrosion tests.
The test duration is variable. This test was originally published as ASTM G43, and is used to determine corrosion resistance in a severe marine atmosphere. These acidified test solutions generally ast, a pH of 3.
Typical Applications ASTM G85 annex A1 – acetic acid salt spray test, continuous Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of decorative chromium plating on steel and zinc based die castings, when exposed to an acetic acid salt spray climate at an elevated temperature.
Test Conditions ASTM G85 annex A1 — acetic acid salt spray test, continuous Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of acidified pH 3. The most common test for steel asym materials is the Neutral Atm Spray test often abbreviated to NSS which reflects the fact that this type of test solution is prepared to a neutral pH of 6.
ASTM G85 – 11 Standard Practice for Modified Salt Spray (Fog) Testing
The test duration is variable. Chamber volumes vary from supplier to supplier.
Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of salt water solution, prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard and acidified to pH 3. ISO standards by standard number.
