ATS Labs offer Salt Spray Testing

salt spray testing

As a salt spray testing lab, ATS is dedicated to helping clients accurately determine how corrosion will impact the functionality or appearance of a product. The goal of these accelerated tests is to ensure that products and coatings will properly withstand the corrosive environments they get exposed to in service without losing their integrity. The ATS salt spray testing lab completes accelerated real-world simulations to accurately determine the impact of corrosion on various products, including fasteners, automotive and aerospace parts. Multiple testing chambers are used to complete a rigorous series of customized salt spray testing. As part of this testing, ATS can also provide clients with a detailed report on the progression or formation of rust on coated test panels, as well as various types of products.

ATS Lab Capabilities

The ATS salt spray testing lab houses several chambers capable of performing accelerated corrosion exposures to a multitude of industry standards, such as ASTM B117, ASTM G85, ASTM B368, DIN ENISO 9227, DIN 50021, ISO 7253, SAE J1563, FLTM BI 103, GM 9540P, GM 4298P, and GMW 14872. During salt spray testing materials are exposed to a carefully regulated high-saline environment for a specific period of time. The paints, coatings, and products are then examined to determine their corrosion resistance levels. Both photographic documentation and quantitative (% blistering, amount of creepage from scribe, etc.) evaluations are performed to provide clients with the data they need to make effective product decisions. ATS salt testing includes:

  • Condensing Humidity Cyclic Corrosion
  • Continuous Salt Fog
  • Copper Accelerated Acetic Acid (CASS)

As part of their dedication to quality results, the ATS team completes salt spray tests to the following industry standards:

  • IEC Standards
  • ASTM Standards
  • DIN, EN and ISO Standards
  • Military Standards
  • Automotive Standards
