Effect of Corrosion on Metal Substrates and Testing Solution

Corrosion is a deterioration of the materials that often occurs due to the interaction of the material with different types of environments such as humid, salty, moist, etc. It directly affects the working life of the sample as well as the indirect cost of production due to material failure, litigation and many more. There are numerous factors that affect the quality of the metal substrates and corrode the materials such as temperature, humidity, contaminants and air pollution, water quality, the presence of chemicals in the environment, salts, acids, different concentrations of metal surfaces and many more.

Effect of Corrosion on Different Materials

Corrosion issues usually occur on the materials such as metals, aluminum, Iron, copper, titanium, magnesium and many more. All these materials are used in different production verticals for different applications. If the quality of these materials is not up to the mark, it will directly affect the actual working life of the product. Therefore, the manufacturers need to test the corrosion resistance strength of the material before using the material for the production process and to determine the expected working life of the product. The quality of the materials can be tested using high-quality testing machines such as salt Spray Chambers. The concept of these machines was introduced by various standardization authorities such as ASTM B117 to determine the expected life and quality of the material.
