Testbed for atmospheric corrosion testing

Testbed for atmospheric corrosion testing

Corrosion testing under field conditions is necessary to obtain real and relevant data on material life and degradation in different environments. For atmospheric corrosion, this is accomplished by exposing metal coupons or industrial products in real-world environments for a specified period of time and then evaluating the corrosion using standardized methods. 

Offer

Within the Testbed for atmospheric corrosion testing, there are several stations in different environments, such as marine, rural and subarctic atmospheres. The data obtained can also be used to verify the results of accelerated corrosion tests in corrosion chambers.

The field tests are used to test products in, for example, the automotive and building industries and infrastructure, but also to meet society's need to know how corrosion changes over time and is affected by climate and the environment.

Our test environments

The testbed for atmospheric corrosion testing, offers exposure of materials at the following stations and environments;

  • Bohus Malmön, Kvarnvik, Sweden (marine ​​atmosphere)
  • Bohus Malmön, Kattesand, Sweden (marine ​​atmosphere)
  • Brest, France (marine atmosphere)
  • Ryda Kungsgård, Sweden (rural atmosphere)
  • Gällivare, Sweden (subartic atmosphere)
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UV- sand abrasion atmosphere)
