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 temperature, followed by air drying at and elevated temperature.
So the tests are quite similar with the exception of the EES variant.
Salt spray test
The info above is accurate but may not be totally inclusive, that is, I may have missed something. The test duration is variable.
There is a general historical consensus that larger chambers can provide a more homogeneous testing environment.
Also, both chamber temperatures are called to be 35C. Anything I did miss was not easily findable on the internet. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Painted ws with an underlying hot-dip galvanized coating can be tested according to this method.
Results are represented generally as testing hours in NSS without appearance of corrosion products e. This info comes from pooled info from searching the internet. This is followed by 2. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed diin a changing climate that comprises the following dib part repeating cycle.
The most common test for steel based materials is the Neutral Salt Spray test often abbreviated to NSS which reflects the fact that this type of test solution is prepared to a neutral pH of 6.
This produces a corrosive environment of dense salt water fog also referred to as a mist or spray in the chamber, so that test samples exposed to this environment are subjected to severely corrosive conditions.
The salt spray test has little application in predicting how materials or surface coatings will resist corrosion in the real-world, because it does not create, replicate or accelerate real-world corrosive conditions. 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. 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.
Cyclic corrosion testing is better suited to this.
Variations to the salt spray test solutions depend upon the materials to be tested. The first climate cycle comprises a continuous indirect spray of neutral pH 6. This spray is set to fall-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1.
Such tests are commonly referred to as modified salt spray tests. This acceleration arises through the use of chemically altered salt spray solutions, often combined with other test climates and in most cases, the relatively rapid cycling of these test climates over time. Chamber volumes vary from supplier to supplier. ASTM G85 is the most popular global test standard covering modified salt spray tests.
The salt spray test is one of the most widespread and long established corrosion tests. For example, a typical electroplated zinc and yellow passivated steel part lasts 96 hours in salt spray test without white rust.
Salt Spray Fog Testing Equipment for ASTM B and DIN 50
From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: ASTM does not address this issue, but ISO does not recommend it and if it is to be done, advocates a thorough cleaning.
Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that ddin the following 3 part repeating cycle.
Salt spray testing is popular because it is relatively inexpensive, quick, well standardized, and reasonably repeatable. This test vin also referred to as an ASS test.
Salt spray test – Wikipedia
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. 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.
Testing periods range from a few hours e. Testing cabinets are manufactured according to the 50201 requirements here. All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer. Most Salt Spray Chambers today are being used NOT to predict the corrosion don of a coating, but to maintain coating processes such as pre-treatment and painting, electroplating, galvanizing, and the like, on a comparative basis.
B holds PH to range 6.
