Corrosion Testing with AES

Tyler von Loesecke - Associated Environmental Systems

Do you need to test the plating on your product? Have a great new paint that you want to make sure will stand the test of time? Associated Environmental Systems has the chamber to fit your needs with our MX series salt spray test chamber.

At AES we are proud to offer the only clear sided salt spray test chamber on the market. Our lucite construction allows our customers to have close visual monitoring of their product while running corrosion tests. With a typical corrosion test, we suggest using a solution of 20% sodium chloride, containing no more than 0.1% sodium iodide and no more than 0.2% impurities. That is dissolved, 5 parts ion weight, into 95 parts of distilled water. It is important to keep the solution at a specific gravity of 1.023 to 1.037 to prevent the atomizing nozzle from clogging.

Our salt spray test chambers meet a wide variety of testing standards including ASTM B117, ISO 9227, and MIL-STD-810. For a full list of our conforming standards, please visit our website to learn more.
