Salt Spray Testing

In the research and development of materials prone to corrosion, salt fog testing, more commonly referred to as salt spray testing, helps determine the resistance of material to corrosion in extreme conditions such as the coastal environments or on roadways where de-icing involves salt. Materials frequently tested are metallic coatings, anodic oxide coatings, or metals and their alloys.

Industry-wide testing standards such as the ASTM B117 and ISO 9227 testing methods have been introduced to regulate the ways in which salt spray testing parameters are met, mainly involving the controlled corrosive environment, exposure duration, and solutions used in testing.

Cross testing engineers can perform both Neutral Salt Spray (NSS) testing and copper-accelerated acetic acid salt spray (CASS) testing in separate chambers which allow us to test a large variety of materials.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
