Corrosion Testing

Salt Spray Testing

Salt spray testing, also known as salt fog testing or salt corrosion testing, is a widely used corrosion testing method to evaluate the corrosion resistance of materials and coatings, particularly in the automotive, aerospace, marine, and manufacturing industries. This testing method simulates the corrosive effects of saltwater or salty environments on materials and products over time. It helps assess how well a material or coating can withstand exposure to salt-laden air or water, which is important for determining their durability and suitability for use in harsh conditions. Common salt spray test, methods are ASTM B117 or ISO 9227, these are widely used method for evaluating the corrosion resistance of materials and coatings.

G48 Corrosion Testing

ASTM G48 is a widely recognized standard test method developed by ASTM for conducting pitting and crevice corrosion resistance testing of stainless steels and related alloys. The ASTM G48 test method involves exposing a specimen to a solution that simulates aggressive chloride-containing environments, which are known to promote pitting and crevice corrosion. The test helps evaluate the susceptibility of stainless steel and other corrosion-resistant alloys to localized corrosion phenomena, which can lead to rapid and severe corrosion damage.

G31 Corrosion Testing

ASTM G31 is a standard test method developed by ASTM International for conducting laboratory immersion corrosion testing with specific emphasis on pitting and crevice corrosion. This test is used to evaluate the corrosion resistance of stainless steels and related alloys in chloride-containing environments, particularly those prone to localized corrosion. The test results provide valuable information about the resistance of the material or alloy to localized corrosion in chloride-containing environments, especially in applications where pitting and crevice corrosion can lead to rapid and severe damage, such as marine equipment, offshore structures, and chemical processing plants.

G28 Corrosion Testing

ASTM G28 is a standard test method for conducting the Intergranular Corrosion in Wrought, Nickel-Rich, Chromium-Bearing Alloys. ASTM G28 is specifically designed to assess the susceptibility of nickel-rich, chromium-bearing alloys to intergranular corrosion, which is a form of corrosion that occurs along the grain boundaries of these materials. Intergranular corrosion can compromise the integrity of these alloys in certain environments, particularly when they are exposed to elevated temperatures.
