Corrosion typically happens when materials are exposed to an aggressive environment, which results in a degradation of material.
Corrosion testing calculates the material's resistance to corrosion under certain environmental conditions, such as humidity and temperature. The process is measured and analysed to determine the likelihood of corrosion.
We can test a variety of metal types, including duplex and austenitic stainless steels and wrought nickel-rich chromium-bearing alloys.
Our Metallurgical Department offers several different corrosion testing methods, including Intergranular Corrosion Testing (IGC), Pitting Corrosion Testing, and Rate Corrosion Testing.
We work to the following testing standards:
- Pitting and crevice corrosion testing to ASTM G48 (Method A) and ASTM A923 Method C*
- Intergranular corrosion tests (ICC) to ASTM A262 Practice A, C and E and BS EN ISO 3651-2 Method A and ASTM G28 (Method A).
