Ensure Confidence in Protective Coatings
What is Corrosion Testing?
Corrosion testing is performed to determine any weaknesses of protective coatings when faced with challenging service environments.
Most commonly, these challenges are salt, humidity and extreme temperatures. For this reason, corrosion testing is commonly referred to as salt spray testing.
Simulating corrosive environments in a laboratory can identify issues with coating suitability and longevity.
It can also raise awareness to problems with coating
processes and coating materials.
For example, an area of poor coating thickness or a coating with substandard barrier pigments can be easily identified when performing corrosion testing.
