NORMA ASTM B117 PDF
ASTM B is the most widely adopted standard for salt spray testing. This standard is issued under the fixed designation B; the number 2 For referenced ASTM standards, visit the ASTM website, , or. Anybody could tell me what’s ” ASTM B [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] SALT SPRAY TESTING” for zinc coating? What’s the specification for testing?.

ASTM G85 is an example of a test standard which contains several modified salt spray tests which are variations to the basic salt spray test. Please note The test standard asm are for general guidance only. The salt spray test is one of the most widespread and long established corrosion tests. Test duration depends on the corrosion resistance of the coating; generally, the more corrosion resistant the asttm is, the longer the period of testing before the appearance of oxides. It is also regularly updated, by an active and broad based ASTM sub-committee, so it is a standard that is continuously evolving.
Is there qualitative methods to determine the amount of rust? Results are represented generally as testing hours in NSS without appearance of corrosion products e.
George Gorecki – Naperville, Illinois. N117 of two simultaneous responses — A. Electroplated zinc-nickel steel parts can last more than hours in NSS test without red rust or onrma hours in CASS test without red rust Requirements are established in test duration hours and coatings shall comply with minimum testing periods.
Both are excellent browsers. In this case, it would have been The most appropriate test cycle and spray solutions are to be agreed between parties. Failure to meet this requirement implies instability in the chemical process of the pre-treatment, or the paint quality, which must be addressed immediately, so that the upcoming batches are of the desired quality.
The first climate cycle comprises a continuous indirect spray of neutral pH 6. ASTM does not address this issue, but ISO does not recommend it and if it is to be done, advocates a thorough asttm.
The suffix to the main standard number asgm the year of publication. For this reason the salt spray test is most often deployed in a quality audit role, where, for example, it can be used to check the effectiveness of a production process, such as the surface asfm of a metallic part. Brian Terry has directly answered your question, but please post your situation rather than an abstract question so that readers can best help you.
Salt spray test – Wikipedia
Is it typically a visual inspection? Is there any equivalence between this two standards? The second climate cycle comprises 0. But we haven’t supported older browsers like IE8. This is followed by 3. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages.
For example, a typical electroplated zinc and yellow passivated steel part lasts 96 hours in salt spray test without white rust. Although the majority of salt spray tests are continuous, i. Hi Sergio, ASTM B does not address corrosion behavior of test specimens, but describes the parameters for conducting a salt spray test. November 14, A. For this reason the salt spray test is most often deployed in a quality audit role, where, for example, it can be used to check the effectiveness of a production process, such as the surface coating of a metallic part.
I really appreciate all help from all of you. Those parameters are set by you, if you are the company whose products are to be tested. This is followed by 2.
Equivalence between ASTM B vs. ISO NSS
This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion paints on steelwhen exposed to a changing climate of dilute salt spray at ambient temperature, followed by air drying at and elevated temperature. The salt fog fall-out rate is verified by using a minimum of two 80cm 2 funnels per salt spray atomiser, each inserted into a measuring cylinder graduated in ml.
Joshua Pires – Vancouver, B. A personal good afternoon to all, I am Jose of Curitiba, I am a painting inspector, I am asstm specialist in the area of Salt Spray, and have a problem and knowing of the competence of all readers in corrosion, perhaps they can help me. What is major difference between ISO [link by ed. This test is also referred to as an ASS test.
Salt spray test
This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of coated or uncoated aluminium alloys and other nirma, when exposed to a changing climate of acidified synthetic seawater spray, followed by a high humidity, both at an elevated temperature.
Although there may be a weak correlation between the duration in salt spray test and the expected life of a coating in certain coatings such as hot dip galvanized steelthis test has gained worldwide popularity due to low cost and quick results.
The salt spray test has little application in predicting how materials or surface coatings will resist corrosion in the real-world, because it does not create, replicate or accelerate norms corrosive conditions. Its use is internationally widespread and its provisions have been frequently re-written into the national standards of other countries, and also appear in other industry specific corrosion test ast.
The end-point of the test is often user-driven. Website design by Peter Bourne Communications. Testing cabinets are manufactured according to the specified requirements here. The zinc carbonates are not produced when a hot-dip galvanized specimen is exposed to a salt spray fog, therefore this testing method does not give an accurate measurement of corrosion protection. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises the following 3 part repeating cycle.
Hi,everyone, I am Sandythe inquirer for the above question.
Sorry. You need to upgrade your browser
ISO standards by standard number. Corrosion tests and standards: Hence it won’t say how long to test for, nor how thick your zinc plating must be to pass, nor whether it needs to be chromated or not, etc. However, visual inspection is often more than enough. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. So I will start with benchmark with these two standards.
