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.

Different coatings have different behavior in salt spray test and consequently, test duration will differ from one type of coating to another. There is a general historical consensus that larger chambers can provide a more homogeneous testing environment.

The salt spray tests are particularly useful for detecting discontinuities, such as nxs and other defects, in certain metallic, organic, anodic oxide and conversion coatings.

Synthetic seawater solutions are also commonly specified by some companies and standards. In either hss, the exposure to salt spray may be salt water spray or synthetic sea water prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard. The most appropriate test cycle and spray solutions are to be agreed between parties. This is considered an out of date browser. Isoo need to upgrade your browser You are using Internet Explorer 8 This is considered an out of date browser. Dear Brian and Davey, Thank you very much for your answers.

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 solution is prepared to a neutral pH of 6. Requirements are agreed between customer and manufacturer.

May 21, A. 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. But benchmarking performance is something altogether different. Both are excellent browsers. The appearance of corrosion products rust or other oxides is evaluated after a pre-determined period of time.


Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of salt water solution, prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard and acidified to pH 3.

The principle application of the salt spray test is therefore enabling quick comparisons to be made between actual and expected corrosion resistance.

Painted surfaces with an underlying hot-dip galvanized coating can be tested according to this method. All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer. ISO standards by standard number. Something totally different like zinc-alloy plating, organic coatings, etc. Website design by Peter Bourne Communications.

Equivalence between ASTM B-117 vs. ISO 9227 NSS

These acidified test solutions generally have a pH of 3. They are not intended to be used for comparative testing as a means of ranking different materials relative to each other with respect to corrosion resistance or as means of predicting long-term corrosion resistance of the tested material. We have a customer, that we supply some zinc electroplated mechanical components to.

Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. 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. Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Daily checking of testing parameters is necessary to show compliance with the standards, so records shall kso maintained accordingly.

ASTM G85 annex A1 — Acetic Acid Salt Spray Test non-cyclic This test can be used to determine the relative ido 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 fog 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. Cyclic corrosion testing is better suited to this.

Retrieved 927 ” https: ASTM G85 is the most popular global test standard covering modified salt spray tests. George Gorecki – Naperville, Illinois A. Corrosion tests and standards: The zinc carbonates are not produced when a hot-dip galvanized specimen is exposed to a salt spray fog, therefore this testing method does not give an accurate measurement of corrosion protection.


ISO – Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres — Salt spray tests

Testing cabinets are manufactured according to the specified requirements here. But which, is any, accelerated test is appropriate depends on what the finish is, and what you hope to test against. Monday to Friday – I am needing to know if a gradual table of corrosion in assay exists of Salt Spray, if this table exists and if anyone would be able to post it, I will be thankful.

This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. For example, a typical electroplated zinc and yellow passivated steel part lasts 96 hours in salt spray test without white rust.

I suggest that you send some parts out for testing according to the ISO standard to see if they meet the spec. The test duration is variable.

Test duration depends on the corrosion resistance of the coating; generally, the more corrosion resistant the coating 2927, the longer the period of testing before the appearance of oxides. Testing periods range from a few hours e. Is it possible to reduce test duration by some accelerated Testing?

Failure to meet this requirement implies instability in the chemical process of the pre-treatment, or the paint quality, which must be addressed immediately, so that the upcoming batches are of the desired quality. Salt spray testing is popular because it is relatively inexpensive, quick, 2927 standardized, and reasonably repeatable.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to 1 9227 2 possible changing climate cycles. Any ISO standard is available for this Testing? The salt spray test is one of the most widespread and long established corrosion tests. The second climate cycle comprises 0. I’ll really appreciate your help
