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.

Usually, the materials to be tested are metallic although stone, ceramics, 922 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. Chamber volumes vary from supplier to supplier. Is there any equivalence between this two standards?

Retrieved from ns https: Variations to the salt spray test solutions depend upon the materials to be tested. This is considered an out of date browser. In either case, the exposure to salt spray may be salt water spray or synthetic sea water prepared in accordance with the requirements of the test standard.

ISO gives the guidelines for proper measurement of corrosion resistance for hot-dip galvanized specimens. The test duration is variable.

What is major difference between ISO [link by ed. ASTM G85 is an example of a test standard which contains several modified salt spray tests which are variations to the basic salt spray test.

Testing periods range from a few hours e. In this context they can be considered to be equivalent and interchangeable terms. The salt spray or salt fog test is a standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to check corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings.

nsa 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.

So if you want to know how to set up a salt spray cabinet or how to make the salt solution, then B is a reference. You need to upgrade your browser You are using Internet Explorer 8 This is considered an out of date browser. This is followed by 1. In the automotive industry requirements are specified under material specifications. Hot-dip galvanizing produces zinc carbonates jss exposed to a natural environment, thus protecting the coating metal and reducing the corrosion rate.


Most Salt Spray Chambers today are being used NOT to predict the corrosion resistance of a coating, but to maintain coating processes such as pre-treatment and painting, electroplating, galvanizing, and the like, on a comparative basis.

From 92227, the free encyclopedia. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. This is followed by 3. This test is also referred to as an ASS test. Options include the following:. Toby Padfield – Troy, Michigan. Testing cabinets are manufactured according to the specified requirements here.

A personal good 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 a problem and knowing of the competence of all readers in corrosion, perhaps they can help me. ASTM G85 is the most popular global test standard covering modified salt spray tests.

These standards describe the necessary information to carry out this test; testing parameters such as temperature, air pressure of the sprayed solution, preparation of the spraying solution, concentration, pHetc.

Such tests are commonly referred to as modified salt spray tests.

Salt spray tests in accordance with DIN EN ISO NSS / AASS / CASS | IGOS, Solingen

The neutral salt spray NSS test particularly applies to – metals and their alloys, – metallic coatings anodic and cathodic- conversion coatings, – anodic oxide coatings, and – organic coatings on metallic materials. Options include the following: The second climate cycle comprises 0. The salt fog fall-out rate is verified by using a nws of two 80cm 2 funnels per salt spray atomiser, each inserted into a measuring cylinder graduated in ml.

The most appropriate test cycle and spray solutions are to be agreed between parties. We isso a customer, that we supply some zinc electroplated mechanical components to.

But we haven’t supported older browsers like IE8.

Hi Sergio, ASTM B does not address corrosion behavior of test specimens, but describes the parameters for conducting a nsss spray test. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to 1 of 2 possible changing climate cycles. The longer the accelerated corrosion test, the longer the process remains out of control, and larger is the loss in the form of non-conforming batches.

It has also been found suitable for testing anodic and organic coatings on aluminium. Daily checking of testing parameters is necessary to show compliance with the standards, so records shall be maintained accordingly. That’s the only way to know for sure. I suggest that you send some parts out for testing according to the ISO standard to see if they meet the spec.


Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary. Hi David, There are several differences between the ixo specifications, including salt concentration range, salt analysis, water quality, angle of inclination of test panels, corrosivity requirements, I think the temperature is about the only thing that has been standardised.

Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests

This is followed by 2. This produces a corrosive environment of dense salt water fog also referred to as a mist or spray in the chamber, so that test samples exposed to this environment are subjected to severely corrosive conditions. From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: 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 and coatings shall comply with minimum testing periods.

Other test solutions have other chemicals added including acetic acid often abbreviated to ASS and acetic acid with copper chloride often abbreviated to CASS each one chosen for the 9227 of decorative coatings, such as electroplated copper-nickel-chromium, electroplated copper-nickel or anodized aluminum. 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.

The salt spray test has little application in predicting how materials or surface coatings will resist corrosion in the real-world, because it does not create, replicate or accelerate real-world corrosive conditions. Both are excellent browsers. Although popular in certain industries, modified nzs spray testing has in many cases been superseded by Cyclic corrosion testing CCT The type of environmental test chambers used for modified salt spray testing to ASTM G85 are generally similar to the chambers used for testing to ASTM Bbut will often 9272 some additional features, such as an automatic climate cycling control system.
