There are three distinct test method in ISO the neutral salt spray (NSS), the acetic acid salt spray (AASS), and copper-accelerated acetic. ISO NSS. adv. auto technology banner. A discussion started in but continuing through Q. We have a customer, that we supply some zinc. The salt spray (or salt fog) test is a standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to Other important relevant standards are ISO, JIS Z and ASTM G 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.

That’s the only way to know for sure.

Life cycle A standard nsz reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary. 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 927 fall-out rate is verified by using a minimum of two 80cm 2 funnels per salt spray atomiser, each inserted into a measuring cylinder graduated in ml. The salt spray tests are particularly useful for detecting discontinuities, such as pores and other defects, in certain metallic, organic, anodic oxide and conversion coatings.

A personal good afternoon to all, I am Jose of Curitiba, I am a painting inspector, I am a specialist in the area of Salt Spray, and have a problem and knowing of the competence of all readers in corrosion, perhaps they can help me. This is followed by 0. Synthetic seawater solutions are also commonly specified by some companies and standards.

For this reason the salt spray test is most often deployed in a quality audit role, where, for example, it can be used to check the effectiveness of a production process, such as the surface coating of a metallic part.

Such tests are commonly referred to as modified salt spray tests. Website design by Peter Bourne Communications.

I’ll really appreciate your help This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion oso coated and uncoated metallic specimens, when exposed to a salt spray climate at an elevated temperature. May 21, A. Options include the following: 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.

Hot-dip galvanizing produces zinc carbonates when exposed to a natural environment, thus protecting the coating metal and reducing the corrosion rate.

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.

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. Remember that accelerated testing is not a proper indication of real world performance.

ASTM G85 is the most popular global test standard covering modified nsss spray tests. This is followed by 3. The salt spray methods are all ios for checking that the quality of a metallic material, with or without corrosion protection, is maintained. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. Views Read Edit View history. 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.


This test can be used isso 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.

Salt spray test – Wikipedia

This spray is set to fall-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1. Monday to Friday – But benchmarking performance is something altogether different. ASTM B was the first internationally recognized salt spray standard, originally published in It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. Something totally different like zinc-alloy plating, organic coatings, etc. Daily checking of testing parameters is necessary to show compliance with the standards, so records shall be maintained accordingly.

A requirement that a component ‘pass’ an accelerated corrosion test isn’t often meaningful until the finishing spec tells you what that means: Although there may be a weak correlation between the duration in salt spray test and the expected life of a coating in certain coatings such as hot dip galvanized steelthis test has gained worldwide popularity due to low cost and quick results.

March 16, A. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises the following 2 part nsss cycle.
