Corrosion due to moisture and salt exposure occurs in nearly every industry, costing millions in repairs. While the bulk of salt exposure occurs along coastlines, salt is also present in the ground, atmosphere, rivers, and lakes. In colder climates, road salt contributes largely to corrosion on vehicles and bridges. Salt spray testing labs evaluate how salt and moisture corrosion impact products and materials. At ATS, we perform accelerated salt spray (also known as salt fog) corrosion tests to assess metal, coating, and plating performance in corrosive environments. We test automotive and aerospace parts, fasteners, and other products for changes in integrity.
Our Salt Fog Lab
The ATS salt spray lab measures corrosion progression at intervals, corrosion creepage on scratched surfaces, coating adhesion, degree of rusting, and degree of coating blistering. We ensure that our clients’ products can withstand the corrosive environments in which they will serve. Our technicians utilize several salt spray testing methods, including:
ATS performs corrosion testing for numerous industries with the capacity to evaluate both small and large samples. We test to a wide range of standards, such as:
Our facility utilizes up-to-date equipment to provide our clients with accurate data.
