Nansulate® Accelerated Corrosion Testing
Why we chose this test:
The GM9540P Accelerated Corrosion Test is an advanced cyclic method originally developed by General Motors and now the corrosion test preferred by the US Navy and many industries.
To be useful, lab corrosion tests must accurately predict the probability of corrosion in the real world, thereby allowing more rapid selection of materials, coatings, and packaging. It is also important that a lab test creates the same corrosion by-products and surface defects that occur in end-use. A test method, technique, or equipment that does not provide a close match to “end use” will yield false results.
GM9540P is useful because it replicates many of the worst-case environments. The popularity of cyclic testing comes from the improved reliability of results that can be correlated with actual use. Cyclic refers to the repeated changes in test conditions, ideally to replicate the changing environments where the product will be used. Rapid changes in the test condition further serve to accelerate material degradation, which can give months or even years of information in an accelerated period of time.
The GM9540P has recently been adopted as the leading environmental corrosion test that is used universally by the Military, Auto and Heavy Process Industries.
The testing was performed by Assured Testing Services, www.assuredtestingservices.com, an independent accredited laboratory specializing in corrosion testing.
