There are three distinct test method in ISO the neutral salt spray (NSS), the acetic acid salt spray (AASS), and copper-accelerated acetic. ISO NSS. adv. auto technology banner. A discussion started in but continuing through Q. We have a customer, that we supply some zinc. The salt spray (or salt fog) test is a standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to Other important relevant standards are ISO, JIS Z and ASTM G The most common test for steel based materials is the Neutral Salt Spray test (often abbreviated to NSS) which reflects the fact that this type of test.

Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. Is it possible to reduce test duration by some accelerated Testing? This website has been developed with modern browsers in mind to allow it to display at its best in a wide variety of viewing situations – including mobile viewing.

92227 are excellent browsers. Something totally different like zinc-alloy plating, organic coatings, etc. In the automotive industry requirements are specified under material specifications. Website design by Peter Bourne Communications. Dear Brian and Davey, Thank you very much for your answers.

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 most appropriate test cycle and spray solutions are to be agreed between parties. ASTM B was the first internationally recognized salt spray standard, originally published in This is considered an out of date browser.

Salt spray test

I’ll really appreciate your help A personal nsa afternoon to all, I am Jose of Curitiba, I am a painting inspector, I am a specialist in the area of Salt Spray, and have ios problem and knowing of the competence of all readers in corrosion, perhaps they can help me. But we haven’t supported older browsers like IE8. Most commonly, the time taken for oxides to appear on the samples under test is compared to expectations, to determine whether the test is passed or failed.

Testing periods range 922 a few hours e. The salt spray tests are particularly useful for detecting discontinuities, such as pores and other defects, in certain metallic, organic, anodic oxide and conversion coatings. ISO gives the guidelines for proper measurement of corrosion resistance for hot-dip galvanized specimens. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Contact Ascott for Further Information. The second climate cycle comprises 0. ASTM does not address this issue, but ISO does not recommend it and if it is to be done, advocates a thorough cleaning. 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.

Different coatings ns different behavior in salt spray test and consequently, test duration will differ from one type of coating to another.

Electroplated zinc-nickel steel parts can last more than hours in NSS test without red rust or 48 hours in CASS test without red rust Requirements are established in test duration hours nzs coatings shall comply with minimum testing periods. The appearance of corrosion products rust or other oxides is evaluated after a pre-determined period of time. The salt spray methods are all suitable for checking that the quality of a metallic material, with or without corrosion protection, is maintained.

They are not intended to be used for comparative testing as a means of ranking different materials relative to each other with respect to corrosion resistance or as means of predicting long-term corrosion resistance of the tested material. Chamber volumes vary from supplier to supplier. All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer.

Equivalence between ASTM B-117 vs. ISO 9227 NSS

This is followed by 2. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises the following 3 part repeating cycle. This test can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion paints on ksowhen exposed to a changing climate of dilute salt spray at ambient temperature, followed by air drying at and elevated temperature.


But benchmarking performance is something altogether different. Retrieved from ” https: The most common test for steel based materials is the Neutral Salt Spray test often abbreviated to NSS which reflects the fact that this type of test solution is prepared nsx a neutral pH of 6.

The salt spray or salt fog test is a standardized and popular corrosion test nas, used to check corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings. Is there any equivalence between this two standards?

Failure to meet this requirement implies instability in the chemical process of the pre-treatment, or the paint quality, which must be nws immediately, so that the upcoming batches are of the desired quality. What is major difference between ISO [link by ed. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of salt water solution, prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard and acidified to pH 3.

ISO | Standards | Ascott Analytical

Hi David, There are several differences between the two specifications, including salt concentration range, salt analysis, water quality, angle of inclination of test panels, nsw requirements, I think the temperature is about the only thing that has been standardised.

You will then need to talk to your customer about the possibility of using one specification in lieu of the other. March 16, A. But which, is any, accelerated test is appropriate depends on what the finish is, and what you hope mss test against.

Usually, the materials to be tested are metallic although stone, ceramics, and polymers may also be tested and finished with a surface coating which is intended to provide a degree of corrosion protection to the underlying metal.

This test is also referred to as an ASS test.
