Corrosion of Metals
Different alloys will react to different weathering forces in different ways; responses will vary because surface treatment and metal composition will vary between materials. Our experienced technicians use a variety of test methods to discover how sample alloys hold up under environmental conditions similar to their intended use, and then help clients decide on the most relevant material to use in their product. ATS’ corrosion lab accomplishes these tasks by performing the following tests to their relevant standards:
Corrosion Lab Capabilities
Copper Accelerated Acetic-Salt Spray (CASS) Testing: specialized cyclic corrosion test used on copper, nickel and chromium coatings or decorative features intended for use in severe conditions
Cyclic Immersion Testing: repeatedly dunking the test materials into corrosive liquid, letting them dry, and then dunk again for several cycles
Filiform Corrosion Testing: salt spray method specialized to discover coated metals’ resistance to a specific kind of corrosive attack
