Ageing, climatic and durability tests

Aging, climatic and durability tests

In the field of ageing, climate testing, we have a wide range of technical capabilities:

  • tests in a salt chamber, in neutral, acidic and alkaline brine,
  • tests in the Xenon chamber (xenon lamps) and UV chamber,
  • tests in climatic chambers, laboratory dryers, in thermal shock chambers (change of temperature up to 10s),
  • ageing tests in Mattson’s solution.

In terms of the predicted durability of corrosion protection coatings, we are able to determine their predicted durability, whether for surface, underground or

in water. We carry out tests in terms of test standards in brine, condensation, melting in water, and alternating cycles.

Durability testing according to the EN ISO 12944 standard series.

Following the durability test, we carry out control tests on the durability of coatings in accordance with

according to standard ISO 4628
