More About The Specific Tests
ASTM B117 salt spray / salt fog testing exposes metal specimens and products to a controlled corrosive environment at an accelerated rate. Temperature and humidity testing are also conducted in a controlled environment using a chamber that offers a wide-range of temperature and relative humidity options. The results of these tests can assist in predicting material performance while in service, but even with the best intentions and precautions, corrosion can cause damage to materials.
Our metallurgical engineers can also detect corrosion on test samples and research the source of the problem when corrosion does occur. A fully computerized SEM/EDS system at LTI allows assists with corrosion detection and failure analysis. The high magnification and high resolution imaging of the SEM, used in conjunction with the analysis capabilities of the EDS, can provide answers about corrosive agents affecting even the smallest areas of interest.
