ISO NSS. adv. auto technology banner. A discussion started in but continuing through Q. We have a customer, that we supply some zinc. Information to the interpretation of the result. The salt spray test is done according to DIN EN ISO (NSS). The paint thickness is measured. 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.

This is followed by 0. You will then need to talk to your customer about the possibility of using one specification in lieu of the other.

Salt spray test – Wikipedia

Monday to Friday – The salt spray methods are all suitable for checking that the quality of a metallic material, with or without corrosion protection, is maintained. This climate is maintained under constant steady state conditions. The test duration is variable. Regards, Ted Mooney, P. Variations kso the salt spray test solutions depend upon the materials to be tested. Toby Padfield – Troy, Michigan.

Equivalence between ASTM B-117 vs. ISO 9227 NSS

A personal good afternoon to all, I am Jose of Is, 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. What is major difference between ISO [link by ed. It also describes the method employed to evaluate the corrosivity of the test cabinet environment. Testing periods range from a few hours e.

The second climate cycle comprises 0. Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to 1 of 2 possible changing climate cycles. 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 of the test standard and acidified to pH 3.


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. Something totally different like zinc-alloy plating, organic coatings, etc.

Different coatings have different behavior in salt spray test and consequently, test duration will differ from one type of coating to another. Remember that accelerated testing is not a proper indication of real world performance.

Requirements are agreed between customer and manufacturer. 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.

The appearance of corrosion products rust or other oxides is evaluated after a pre-determined period of time. They are not intended to be ns for comparative testing as a means of ranking different materials relative to each other with respect to corrosion resistance or as enn of predicting long-term corrosion resistance of the tested material.

Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – Salt spray tests

All information presented is for general isp and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of an author’s employer. Corrosion tests and standards: In the automotive industry requirements are specified under material specifications. Although the majority of salt spray tests are continuous, i. March 16, A. This acceleration arises through the use of chemically altered salt ios solutions, often combined with other test climates and in most cases, the relatively rapid cycling of these test climates over time.

This produces a corrosive environment of dense salt water fog also referred to as a mist or spray in the chamber, so that test samples exposed to this environment are subjected to severely corrosive conditions.

Salt spray tests in accordance with DIN EN ISO NSS / AASS / CASS | IGOS, Solingen

The salt spray tests are particularly useful for detecting discontinuities, such as pores and other defects, in certain metallic, organic, anodic oxide and conversion coatings. We have a customer, that we supply some zinc electroplated mechanical components to.

Proof sent to lso or FDIS ballot initiated: 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 solution is prepared to a neutral pH of 6.


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. The neutral salt spray NSS test particularly applies to – metals and their alloys, – metallic coatings anodic and cathodic- conversion coatings, – nsz oxide coatings, and – organic coatings on metallic materials.

For example, a typical electroplated zinc and yellow passivated steel part lasts 96 hours in salt spray test without white rust. I’ll really appreciate your help The first climate cycle comprises a continuous indirect spray of neutral pH 6. So I will start with jso with these two standards.

Hi David, There are several differences between the two specifications, including salt concentration range, salt analysis, water quality, angle of inclination of test panels, djn requirements, I think the temperature is about the only thing that has been standardised.

Test specimens are placed in an enclosed chamber, and exposed to a changing climate that comprises the following 2 part repeating cycle. These standards describe the necessary information to carry out this test; testing parameters such as temperature, air pressure of the sprayed solution, preparation of the spraying solution, concentration, pHetc. ISO gives dun guidelines for proper measurement of corrosion resistance for hot-dip galvanized specimens. Life cycle A standard is reviewed every 5 years 00 Preliminary.

Hot-dip galvanizing produces zinc carbonates when exposed to a natural environment, thus protecting the coating metal and reducing the corrosion rate. However, these testing standards neither provide information of testing periods for the coatings to be evaluated, nor the appearance of corrosion products in form of salts.

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. Is it possible to reduce test duration by some accelerated Testing?

The salt spray or salt fog test is a standardized and popular corrosion test method, used to check corrosion resistance of materials and surface coatings. This test is also referred to as an ASS test. Chamber volumes vary from supplier to nsx.
