Salt Fog Testing

Our salt spray department (also called salt fog testing) maintains two salt spray test chambers to ASTM B117 requirements.  Both chambers are in daily use and we have the versatility to schedule either chamber for long-term salt fog test projects.  One chamber is larger permitting projects with a greater number of samples or larger components or assemblies to be tested all within a single chamber.

Long term salt spray tests that require interim examinations actually require twice as many samples as regular B117 tests.
