Title: Corrosion Test Methods

Description:

This presentation focuses on corrosion test methodology.  It includes a review of current industry methods, where they are best applied and when they can lead to erroneous results. 

Type: Learning Station V: Improving ECOAT Performance

Abstract:

The automotive industry has long driven the development envelope of new coating technologies in an effort to extend the service life of vehicles. The cornerstone to benchmarking improvement is a sound test protocol.  A good test needs to duplicate real world failure mechanisms at an accelerated rate. This presentation will focus on corrosion test methodology, including a review of current industry methods, where they are best applied and when they can lead to erroneous results. Understanding these details is critical for proper data interpretation and sound conclusions. Proper testing and good data interpretation leads to reduced corrosion and longer product service life.
