Objects are tested in artificial corrosive atmospheres (e.g. salt spray, immersion in corrosive solutions, sulfur dioxide environment, specific climatic conditions, condensation of water vapor, etc). The surfaces of the objects and their base material are evaluated. Tests can be performed on reference samples (e.g. coated and/or galvanized vehicle body parts) or on finished objects (e.g. LPG tanks, bumpers, wipers, heat exchangers, rocker arms, brackets, covers, etc.). The laboratory also has the ability to test items not related to the automotive industry.
So-called internal corrosion tests are also performed in the laboratory, where test objects (mainly heat exchangers) are subjected to simulated operation with fluids causing accelerated corrosion, or exhaust gas condensate.
The laboratory has a number of corrosion chambers that meet various customers’ requirements:
- Weiss Technik
In addition, the laboratory is able to prepare a suitable test chamber or test stand to suit specific customer requirements.
