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.

But which, is any, accelerated test is appropriate depends on what the finish is, and what you hope to test against.
The number of cycle repeats and therefore the test duration is variable. In either case, 92227 exposure to salt spray may be salt water spray or synthetic sea water prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard.
Dear Brian and Davey, Thank you very much for your answers.
Brian Terry has directly answered your question, but please post your situation rather than an abstract question so that readers can best help you. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. Testing periods range from a few hours e.
We have a customer, that we supply some zinc electroplated mechanical components to. A discussion started in but continuing through Q. Although the majority of salt spray tests are continuous, i. The most appropriate ido cycle and spray solutions are to isp agreed between parties. This is followed by 3. Variations to the salt spray test solutions depend upon the materials to be tested.
The neutral salt spray NSS test particularly applies to – metals and their alloys, – metallic coatings anodic and cathodic- conversion coatings, – anodic oxide coatings, and – organic coatings on metallic materials. Results are represented generally as testing hours in NSS without appearance of corrosion products e.
I suggest that you send some parts out for testing according to the ISO standard to see if they meet the spec. Daily checking of testing parameters is necessary to show compliance with the standards, so records shall be maintained accordingly.
Monday to Nds – It also describes the method employed to evaluate the corrosivity of the test cabinet environment. ISO gives the guidelines for proper measurement of corrosion resistance for hot-dip galvanized specimens.
Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests
This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion paints on steelwhen exposed to a changing climate of dilute salt spray at ambient temperature, followed by air drying at and elevated temperature. For this reason the salt spray test is most often deployed in a quality audit role, where, for example, it can be used to check the effectiveness of a production process, such as the surface coating of a metallic part.
Most commonly, the time taken for oxides to appear on the samples under test is compared to expectations, to determine whether the test is passed or failed. Regards, Ted Mooney, P. March 16, A.
The first climate cycle comprises a continuous indirect spray of neutral pH 6. In the automotive industry requirements are specified under material specifications. So if you want to know how to set up a salt spray cabinet or how to make the salt solution, then B is a reference. There is a mss historical consensus that larger chambers can provide a more homogeneous testing environment.
ISO – Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres — Salt spray tests
The second climate cycle comprises 0. This produces a 92227 environment of dense salt water fog also referred to as a mist or spray in the chamber, so that test samples exposed to this 9227 are subjected isso severely corrosive conditions. Salt spray testing is an accelerated corrosion test that produces a corrosive attack to coated samples in order to evaluate mostly comparatively the suitability of the coating for use as a protective finish.
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. The salt solution should be prepared according to the nature of the test in accordance with Paragraph 3 of ISO and the 3 options are summarised below.
The salt spray or salt fog test is a standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to check corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. Cyclic corrosion testing is better suited to iao. This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of coated ns uncoated aluminium alloys and other metals, when exposed to a changing climate of acidified synthetic seawater spray, followed by a high humidity, both at an elevated temperature.
ASTM does not address this issue, but ISO does not recommend it and ixo it is to be done, advocates a thorough cleaning. The test duration is variable. This is followed by 2. Toby Padfield – Troy, Michigan. You will then need to talk to your customer about the possibility of using one specification in lieu of the other. Synthetic seawater solutions are also commonly specified by some companies and standards. George Gorecki – Naperville, Illinois A. So I will start with benchmark with these two standards.
It has sio been found suitable for testing anodic and organic coatings on aluminium. This is followed by 0. Any ISO standard is available 9272 this Testing? So this information should not be used as a substitute for referring to a complete test standard, at an appropriate revision level.

Options include the following: The salt fog fall-out rate is verified by using a hss of two 80cm 2 funnels per salt spray atomiser, each inserted into a measuring cylinder graduated in ml.
