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.

Although there may be a weak correlation between the duration in salt spray test and the expected life of a coating in certain coatings such as hot dip galvanized steelthis test has gained worldwide popularity due to low cost and quick results.

Failure to meet this requirement implies instability in the chemical process of the pre-treatment, or the paint quality, which nws be addressed immediately, so that the upcoming batches are of the desired quality.

Equivalence between ASTM B vs. ISO NSS

George Gorecki – Naperville, Illinois A. The zinc carbonates are not produced when a hot-dip galvanized specimen is exposed to iwo salt spray fog, therefore this testing method does not give an accurate measurement of corrosion protection. I am needing to know if a gradual table of corrosion in assay exists of Salt Spray, if this table exists and if anyone would be able to post it, I will be thankful. Is there any equivalence between this two standards? The neutral salt spray NSS test particularly applies 92227 – metals and their alloys, – metallic coatings anodic and cathodic- conversion coatings, – anodic oxide coatings, and – organic coatings on metallic materials.


What do you want to test? 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. The salt spray test is one of the most widespread and long established corrosion tests. Though believed to be accurate at the time of writing, this may change over time.

The test duration is variable. Variations to the salt spray test solutions depend upon the materials to be tested.

Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises the following 2 part repeating cycle. 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. So if you want to know how to set up a salt spray nsz or how to make the salt solution, then B sns a reference.

This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions.

All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer. But which, is any, accelerated test is appropriate depends on what the finish is, and what you hope to test against.

Toby Padfield – Troy, Michigan. This spray is set to fall-out on to the specimens at a rate of 1. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


For example, a typical electroplated zinc and yellow passivated steel part lasts 96 hours in salt spray test without white rust.

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. It also describes the method employed to evaluate the corrosivity of the test cabinet environment.

Regards, Ted Mooney, P. The appearance of corrosion products rust or other oxides is evaluated after a pre-determined period of time. Final text received or FDIS registered for formal approval. This is followed by 2. 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.

This page was last edited on 29 Octoberat Testing isso range from a few hours e. ISO gives the guidelines for proper measurement of corrosion resistance for hot-dip galvanized specimens.

The first climate cycle comprises a continuous indirect spray of neutral pH ns. Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary.
