What Is corrosion testing?
Corrosion testing provides essential information on your product’s life and design. It is important to understand the structural ability and resistance to corrosive materials and environments, like salt and other chemical compounds. Corrosion has an impact on the reliability and structure of a metal product. Corrosion can also cause health and environmental problems.
For industrial developers, understanding corrosion is a major issue and the purpose of our testing is to identify corrosion-weak areas of your product, whether external or internal so that you can adapt your product with long-lasting and dependable solutions.
Why do manufacturers conduct corrosion testing?
It’s important to understand how corrosion will affect your product throughout its lifecycle and how it will stand up to a variety of environments, chemicals, and conditions. We can also compare different materials to determine which is the best for you. Corrosion testing also helps manufacturers understand if coating processes are performing to specification. Also, we can recreate unique types of corrosion such as filiform corrosion or crust corrosion in our test chambers.
How can Testing Partners help?
We can evaluate your product for corrosion resistance according to multiple internationally recognized standards. Corrosion-resistant ratings are also often required by sellers or retailers before a product is purchased from manufacturers and resold to consumers, regardless of a product’s intent to protect against corrosion.
