Reliability - Salt Fog Testing

Salt Fog Testing

Salt Fog testing enables one to determine the quality and reliability of a product under corrosive atmospheric conditions.

Depending on the end-user or installation environment, most materials and consumer products have a high probability of being subjected to some corrosive atmosphere exposure during their lifetimes. This test verifies the ability of materials and product to withstand exposure to a high salinity environment.

Testing is conducted at warm temperatures and calls for a salt fog to be allowed to settle over the samples at a specified rate. Typical test sequences run approximately four days in duration and provide a good comparative test between design alternatives for resistance to salt fog environmental exposure.
