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.

There is a general historical consensus that larger chambers can provide a more homogeneous testing environment. Salt spray testing is popular because it is relatively inexpensive, quick, well standardized, and reasonably repeatable.

Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests

Contact Ascott for Further Information. Chamber volumes vary from supplier to supplier. I am needing to know if a is table of corrosion in assay exists of Salt Spray, if this table exists and if anyone would be able to post it, I will be nws.

Electroplated zinc-nickel steel parts can last more than hours in NSS test without red rust or 48 hours in CASS test without red rust Requirements are established in test duration hours and coatings shall comply with minimum testing periods. This produces a corrosive environment of dense salt water fog also referred to as a mist or spray in the chamber, so that test samples exposed to this environment are subjected to severely corrosive conditions.


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. These acidified test solutions generally have a pH of 3.

So I will start with benchmark with these two standards. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. The second climate cycle comprises 0. A personal good afternoon to all, I am Lso of Curitiba, I am a painting inspector, I am a specialist in the area of Salt Spray, and have a problem and knowing of the competence of all readers in corrosion, perhaps they can help me.

These standards describe the necessary information to carry out this test; testing parameters such as temperature, air pressure of the sprayed solution, preparation of the spraying solution, concentration, pHetc. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Cyclic corrosion testing is better suited to this. Options include the following: 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.

Variations to the salt spray test solutions depend upon the materials to be tested. Dear Brian and Davey, Thank you very much for your answers. The longer the accelerated corrosion test, the longer the 92277 remains out of control, and larger is the loss in the form of non-conforming batches.

Hi Sergio, ASTM B does not address corrosion behavior of test specimens, but describes the parameters for conducting a salt spray test.

This test is also referred to as an ASS test. The salt spray test has little application in predicting how materials or surface coatings will resist corrosion in the real-world, because it does not create, replicate or accelerate real-world corrosive conditions. In either case, the exposure to salt spray may be salt water spray or synthetic sea water prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard. The first climate cycle comprises a continuous indirect spray of neutral pH 6. Although the majority of salt spray tests are continuous, i.


The neutral salt spray NSS test particularly applies to – metals and their ns, – iwo coatings anodic and cathodic- conversion coatings, – jso oxide coatings, and – organic coatings on metallic materials. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions.

Sorry. You need to upgrade your browser

Such tests are commonly referred to as modified salt spray tests. I’ll really appreciate your help A discussion started in but continuing through Q.

Other test solutions have other chemicals added including acetic acid often abbreviated to ASS and acetic acid with copper chloride often abbreviated to CASS each one chosen for the evaluation of decorative coatings, such as electroplated copper-nickel-chromium, electroplated copper-nickel or anodized aluminum. The test duration is variable.

Please note The test standard summaries are for general guidance only. The salt hss fall-out rate is verified by using a minimum of two 80cm 2 funnels per salt spray atomiser, each inserted into a measuring cylinder graduated in ml. ISO gives the guidelines for proper measurement of corrosion resistance for hot-dip galvanized specimens.
