CORROSION TESTING — WHEN MIST TURNS SALTY

To test the resistance and protection level of coatings, we expose the test specimen to a sodium chloride solution. With a neutral pH value, the solution continuously attacks the surface of the specimen in the 35 degree salt spray chamber. Depending on the application requirements of the connection technology, the testing time can last from a few hours right up to several 1000 hours. Afterwards, typical features such as white rust and red rust can be assessed.

Neutral salt spray testing e.g. in with:

  • DIN EN ISO 9227

COATING THICKNESS — NOTHING ESCAPES AN X-RAY

How thick are the coatings or metallic coverings on a surface? Coat thickness measurement provides the answer to this question. An X-ray fluorescence measuring instrument enables us to carry out a non-destructive analysis and determine core parameters within seconds. This includes different galvanised coatings and the elemental composition of multilayer coverings.
