From the routine to the extremely specialized, ARL can meet all of your Environmental Testing needs. Our lab performs a wide variety of environmental testing (also known in some fields as climatic testing), including Salt Fog / Salt Spray tests:
Salt Fog is a specialized test used to evaluate the resistance to corrosion of paints, coatings or electrical connections. Our chambers provide exposure to a salt intensive atmosphere at temperatures of the customer’s choice.
Salt Spray is an accelerated corrosion test that produces a corrosive attack to determine the effectiveness of protective coatings and finishes on materials. It may also be applied to determine the effects of salt deposits on the physical and electrical aspects of material. This test is to be applied to compare the resistance to deterioration from salt mist of specimens of similar construction. It is useful for evaluating the quality and the uniformity of protective coatings.
- Temperature, Specific Gravity, pH and Fog Rate are controlled
- Standards: ASTM, IEC, Military & Others
Other Environmental Tests performed by ARL, include:
Our facilities also allow us to fulfill each of your environmental testing mandates as ARL has 22 temperature, temperature cycling, and humidity chambers ranging in dimension from 8 to 80 cubic feet. Additionally, our test capabilities allow customer-designed products to meet their qualification test requirements and, more importantly, survive the environmental stresses seen in the field. Notably, we can perform environmental testing to meet a broad range of specifications, including IEC, MIL-STD, DO-160, SAE, NEBS, ASTM, ISTA, and others.
