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.

Test duration depends on the corrosion resistance of the coating; generally, the more corrosion resistant the coating is, the longer the period of testing before the appearance of oxides.

Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests

Salt spray testing is an accelerated corrosion test that produces a corrosive attack to coated samples in order to evaluate mostly comparatively the suitability mss the coating for use as a protective finish. Variations to the salt spray test solutions depend upon the materials to be tested.

The salt fog fall-out rate is verified by using a minimum of two 80cm 2 funnels per salt spray atomiser, each inserted into a measuring cylinder graduated in ml. Something totally different like zinc-alloy plating, organic coatings, etc.


Proof sent to secretariat or FDIS ballot initiated: Requirements are agreed between customer and manufacturer. George Gorecki – Naperville, Illinois A. The number of cycle repeats and therefore the test duration 92277 variable. Most commonly, the time taken for oxides to appear on the samples under test is compared to expectations, to determine jss the test is passed or failed.

All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer. Both are excellent browsers. 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. Though believed to be accurate at the time of writing, this may change over time.

The first climate cycle comprises a continuous indirect spray of neutral pH 6. These acidified test solutions generally have a pH of 3. Contact Ascott for Further Information. May 21, A. Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary. This is followed by 3. Toby Padfield – Troy, Michigan.

So I will start with benchmark with these two standards. Salt spray testing is popular because it is relatively inexpensive, quick, well standardized, and reasonably repeatable. Regards, Ted Mooney, P.

Please note The test standard summaries are for general guidance only. The second climate cycle comprises 0. 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.


This is followed by 2. A discussion started in but continuing through Q. Different coatings have different behavior in salt spray nsa and consequently, test duration will differ from one type of coating to another. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber and exposed to a continuous indirect spray of salt water solution, prepared in accordance with the requirements sio the test standard and acidified to pH 3. But benchmarking performance is something altogether different.

This spray is set to fall-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1. Cyclic corrosion testing is better suited to this.

Equivalence between ASTM B vs. ISO NSS

In this context they can be considered to be equivalent and interchangeable terms. For this reason the salt spray test is most often deployed in a quality audit role, where, for example, it can be used to check the effectiveness of a production process, such as the surface coating of a metallic part.

That’s the only way to know for sure. The salt solution should be prepared according to the nature of the test in accordance with Paragraph 3 of ISO and the 3 options are summarised 9272.
