Understanding the makeup of your materials is important for chemical verification, selection, and contaminant identification.
Metallurgical Engineering offers comprehensive corrosion testing according to ASTM specifications. Our corrosion testing services include accelerated weathering by salt spray (ASTM B117) or CASS exposure (ASTM B368), as well as cyclical immersion testing and custom exposure cycles. You can reserve our environmental test chambers for as long as it takes to resolve your corrosion problems or let our experts study your materials to discover the root cause of failure.
Following exposure, MES will evaluate your materials for changes in mechanical properties, weight loss, or study corrosion cells under high magnification in our surface analysis laboratory. Data collected from corrosion testing helps to determine component service life, compare corrosion performance of materials, and identify problem areas, such as galvanic couples. Corrosion testing also provides quality control by ensuring that your coatings and electro-platings meet the required specification.
