Military - Salt Fog Testing
Salt Fog testing enables one to determine the quality and reliability of a product under corrosive atmospheric conditions.
Westpak performs Salt Fog testing (also referred to
as Salt Spray) for Military clients per MIL STD 810G, MIL STD 202, and ASTM
B117. The applicable sections of these well-established test protocols are
designed to determine the ability of materials and products to withstand
exposure to a saline environment.
Testing is conducted in a tightly controlled warm,
humid, and salty atmosphere by trained and experienced engineers utilizing a
large Salt Fog chamber. Visible corrosion, a result of subjecting a part prone
to corrosion to Salt Fog, appears quickly - usually in just a few days. Salt
Fog testing is much more aggressive than Damp Heat testing due to the natural
effects of warm, salty atmosphere.
