Why it is important to test automotive parts against corrosion?

Automotive parts are widely used in the automotive industry for lubricating, cleaning, or repairing motor vehicles. The surface of these parts is coated with paint so that these components can be used for a longer time. But, manufacturers of the automotive industry must conduct quality tests to ensure the right products will be delivered to the customers. One of the most important tests for ensuring a coating is properly applied and will be resistant to corrosion is the salt spray test. This is one of the essential quality control tests that can be conducted with the help of the Presto salt spray chamber. This corrosion test chamber designed by the experts at Presto has been made as per ASTM B117 and JIS 2371 test standards to ensure that users can accurately conduct the test with the help of this lab testing instrument. Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with information about the importance of testing automotive parts against corrosion. But, let us get started with the introduction about the neutral salt spray test and why you should conduct it.


Introduction about neutral salt spray test

Testing automotive parts against corrosion is an important part of maintaining your vehicle. Corrosion can cause your car to lose performance, and it can also lead to expensive repairs. By testing your parts against corrosion, you can ensure that they will last longer and perform as they should. Salt spray testing is one of the essential quality lab tests that have been conducted on metallic as well as non-metallic materials to test their corrosion resistance properties of them.
By conducting a neutral salt spray test on the materials, one can easily ensure the effectiveness of paints and coatings applied to protect the substrate from getting corroded. Presto salt spray testing chamber is one of the high-quality lab testing equipment that is used to analyze the effect of corrosion on different automotive parts. Let’s have a look at how the Presto salt spray chamber is useful in conducting NSS tests on the materials. You can also read about the benefits of salt spray chambers in the metal industry.
