Aluminum Corrosion

Aluminium corrosion testing shows the susceptibility of the tested sample to intergranular attack, pitting and/or exfoliation corrosion. Accurate measurements of the susceptibility to corrosion of a particular material allows engineers and manufacturers to ensure the material will perform to specified parameters. 

 

Corrosion testing can be performed to a variety of specifications and or customer requirements. Most often, testing is done by immersion in solution. Corrosive immersions may be either acidic or basic, and will last anywhere from 6 to 96 hours. Once the immersion cycle is complete, the sample is analysed by visual inspection or mass loss evaluation.
