If you are concerned about potential rust damages to your product, you should probably test its ability to resist to corrosive agents.
Corrosion tests are carried out to check the resistance of a material or a coating to the corrosion process which is triggered naturally with the reaction (chemical or electrochemical) to the aggression of oxidising agents such as, for example, atmospheric oxygen, moisture, gas, corrosive solutions….
This process leads to a gradual deterioration of the material subject to oxidation and the loss of its characteristics (this can be easily seen in all those cases in which a metal surface rusts).
A Corrosion Test Chamber, also known as Salt-spray test chamber, can help manufacturer to understand how corrosion affect your product, which is the best coating or which materials could be most suitable in the context of use.

There is a great variety of salt spray test that a corrosion test chamber can perform, the one to be choosen depends on the application field and on the type and dimension of the product to be tested.
The main type of test to be performed are:
- Dry corrosion test
In which the product under test is exposed to salt spray cycles followed by low humidity drying phases (during the drying phase the small salt deposits trigger a powerful corrosive attack).
- Continuous salt spray test
In which the product is continuously exposed to salt spray phase, and therefore to corrosion, until the end of test duration.
- Alternate salt spray
In which it is possible to alternate salt spray phases and stand by phases.
The conditions for triggering corrosion processes such as “Filiform Corrosion” or “Scab Corrosion” can be recreated in the corrosion test chambers, following the main international standards.
