Salt Fog Corrosion Testing

Salt Fog Corrosion Testing

The purpose of these tests is to evaluate the corrosion resistance of metallic materials with or without a temporary or permanent coating of corrosion protection. Saline mist tests are useful for detecting pore-type discontinuities or other defects of certain metallic, anodic or conversion coat layers.


We are able to conduct the following salt fog corrosion testing:


  • ASS: The acetic salt spray test is useful for decorative coatings of copper / nickel / chromium or nickel / chromium.
  • CASS: The copper / acetate salt spray test applies to copper / nickel / chrome or nickel / chromium decorative coatings

  • MIL –STD -810
  • MIL –STD -883
  • MIL –STD -202
  • IEC 60068-2-11
  • IEC 60068-2-11
