ATS' Environmental Testing Lab Performs Salt Spray Testing to Determine Resistance of Coated and Plated samples to Corrosion

Environmental factors cause exposed metal surfaces to sustain damage from corrosion, a form of chemical deterioration, over time. Corrosion undermines the structural integrity of metal components — from screws to girders — and so it needs to be dealt with. Preferring to avoid lost production, costly repairs, and safety risks, owners of equipment and infrastructure with metal components understand the need to protect their assets. Most apply a protective coating to metal surfaces because it helps prevent corrosion. ATS’ Environmental Testing Division performs a variety of salt spray testing methods to characterize client samples’ resistance to highly corrosive environments.
