Corrosion Testing

Corrosion testing is the gradual destruction of metallic materials, components and products caused by a chemical reaction. It simulates the effects on your product from salt and sea mist. Tests are designed to evaluate corrosion properties and resistance to corrosion of your product.

Corrosion degrades the useful properties of materials and structures, including strength, appearance. Testing can be performed on complete assemblies, painted parts, powder coatings, electronics and more.

Our Cyclic Corrosion Testing Services

With cyclic corrosion testing, the material being tested is cycled through several different environmental cycles. For example, some cyclic corrosion testing includes salt spray, temperature, humidity, or other variables determined by the test standards. A cyclic corrosion test is a testing process that more closely simulates real-world conditions where temperature cycles up and down at various temperatures along with salt spray or salt fog allowing the part to soak for a specific amount of time to discover how corrosion resistance the material is.
