ASTM G85 is a modified salt spray test offered by Micom as part of its corrosion testing services. Contact us for more information at 1 () ASTM G85 is the most popular global test standard covering modified salt spray tests. There are five such tests altogether, referred to in ASTM G85 as annexes. A SWAAT test will use synthetic sea salt that is acidified instead of sodium chloride. Learn more about Touchstone’s ASTM GA3 corrosion testing services.

This test is also referred to as an ASS test.

Astm g85 there is a minimum volume required by a particular salt spray test standard, this will be clearly stated and should be complied with. The salt spray test is one of the most widespread astm g85 long established corrosion tests. 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.

The y85 climate cycle comprises of ast continuous indirect spray of neutral pH 6.

ASTM G85:A5 Dilute Electrolyte Cyclic Fog/Dry Testing

This is followed by 0. This test was developed by F. Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion of decorative chromium plating asstm steel and zinc based die castings, astm g85 exposed to an acetic astm g85 salt spray climate at an elevated temperature. Results are represented generally as testing hours in NSS without appearance of corrosion products e.


But we haven’t supported older astm g85 like IE8. The second climate cycle g885 0. Painted surfaces with an underlying hot-dip galvanized coating can be tested according to this method.

Testing periods range from a few hours e. There is a general historical consensus that larger chambers can provide a more homogeneous testing environment. Select from list below: Astm g85 standards by standard number. A synthetic sea salt solution made with the addition of glacial acetic acid.

Different coatings have astm g85 behavior in salt spray test and consequently, test duration will differ from one type adtm coating to another.

ASTM G85 Annex A1

The solution is then acidified using glacial acetic acid. Requirements are agreed between customer and manufacturer. ASTM G85 annex A3 — seawater acidified test, cyclic Test specimens are placed in an enclosed astm g85, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises of the following astn part repeating cycle.

This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. Touchstone has tested astm g85 coupons and entire components for automotive, aerospace, and other industries. This is followed by 3. ASTM G85 annex A3 – seawater acidified test, astm g85 Can be used to test the relative resistance to corrosion astm g85 coated or uncoated aluminium alloys and f85 metals, when exposed to an changing climate of aastm synthetic seawater spray, followed by a high humidity, both at an elevated temperature.


The number of cycle repeats and therefore the test duration is variable.

This is considered an out of date browser. 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 to a neutral pH of 6. Most commonly, the time taken for oxides to appear on the samples under test is compared to expectations, to astm g85 whether the test is passed or failed.

Astm g85 spray is set to fall-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1. This is followed by 0. This test can be used to determine time to perforation primarily on aluminum alloy astm g85 sheet used to astm g85 heat exchangers, astm g85 even complete heat exchangers under pressure, or other parts.

Daily checking of testing parameters is necessary to show compliance with the standards, so records shall be maintained accordingly. Cyclic corrosion testing is better suited to this.
