Immersion Corrosion Testing

MethodType of TestingRegularly Tested Product TypesDescription
ASTM G31Immersion corrosion testingAdditives, water based corrosion inhibitorsImmersion testing is used to test the efficacy of water-based corrosion inhibitors. Metal specimens are immersed in a corrosive solution to test corrosion rate. Metal specimens are also immersed in a similar solution with corrosion-inhibitor product added, and the corrosion rates are compared.
CC-018Immersion corrosion testingAdditives, water based corrosion inhibitorsCortec also has an internal method, CC-029, for immersion testing that includes broader specifications for sample preparation but with the same test conditions as ASTM G31. Contact us for more details.
