Cyclic corrosion testing provides the best possible laboratory simulation of natural atmospheric corrosion. Research indicates that test results are similar to outdoors in resulting structure, morphology, and relative corrosion rates.

Q-FOG cyclic corrosion chambers from Q-Lab can run traditional salt spray, Prohesion, and most cyclic automotive tests. Q-FOG chambers are available in two sizes to fulfill a wide range of testing requirements.

The Different Types Are:

Model SSP for Prohesion or Conventional Salt Spray Tests

Numerous accelerated corrosion tests may be performed in Q-FOG SSP corrosion tester including Prohesion, ASTM B117 and G85, BS 3900 F4 & F9, DIN 50.021 and ISO 9227 The Prohesion test uses fast cycling, rapid temperature changes, a low humidity dry-off cycle and a different corrosive solution to provide a more realistic test. Many researchers have found this test useful for industrial maintenance coatings.

Model CCT for Corrosion Research and Cyclic Automotive Tests

The Q-FOG model CCT has all the advantages of the model SSP, but adds the flexibility of including 100% humidity.

Todays automotive corrosion test methods typically call for exposing specimens to a repetitive cycle of salt spray, high humidity, low humidity dry-off, and ambient conditions. These test methods were originally developed as labor intensive manual procedures. The multi-functional Q-FOG CCT corrosion tester is designed to perform these cyclic tests automatically in a single chamber.
