LabTest Certification Inc. Provides Salt Spray Testing to Verify Corrosion Resistance of Surfaces
Keep equipment safe and protected with its salt spray test in Canada and the US.
LabTest Certification Inc., a pioneer in product testing and certification, has been offering salt spray testing services to check the corrosion resistance of surfaces, materials, and coating on the equipment. This testing in Canada and the U.S. helps business owners protect their equipment from rusting and corrosion. Manufacturers can also get their products certified by the company to release them into the markets faster. Also known as salt fog or salt mist testing, salt spray testing is used to evaluate the effects of salt solutions on protective coatings and finishes and the effects of salt deposits on such products and electrical components, if any.
Salt exposure can adversely affect product efficacy or functionality, especially if the equipment is located in a coastal environment. Salt spray testing in Canada and the U.S. involves putting the equipment to test under a corrosive saline environment in a dedicated chamber and inducing salt solutions with controlled pH and salt content percentage. At LabTest Certification, they have the expertise and the equipment to perform salt spray tests per industry standards.
Salt spray testing in Canada and the U.S. is a long-established and accelerHere at LabTestated test to assess the suitability of coating used as a protective layer on the surface of the equipment. The test duration varies according to the corrosion resistance of the surface coating. The more resistant the coating, the longer the test period before corrosion or rust appears. The testing is relatively inexpensive and standardized and can be repeated. The tests are usually conducted during quality checks or audits or when the equipment has to be tested for effectiveness during the production process. The most typical coatings tested are zinc, zinc alloy, phosphate surfaces, organic coating, rust preventives, paint coatings, and zinc flake coatings.
Aside from salt spray testing, LabTest Certification offers a wide range of services, including product testing, inspection & certification, R&D testing, test witnessing, field evaluations, preliminary design review, file transfer, and management systems services. Field evaluations are conducted for on-site product approvals and are designed for specialized equipment or products in limited quantities where certifications are considered costly and time-consuming options. As part of the management systems services, LabTest offers training, assessment, and certification in accordance with the ISO 9000 series. The company also offers training programs both online and in-person. Their extensive knowledge and expertise allow them to provide the support the organizations and their staff need so that they can become confident in the subject area.
