CETP 00.00-L-467 Global Laboratory Accelerated Cyclic Corrosion Test

CETP 00.00-L-467 Global Laboratory Accelerated Cyclic Corrosion Test

An accelerated laboratory atmospheric corrosion test method is defined in the CETP 00.00-L-467 standard developed by Ford Motor Company (FORD). The test environment used in this method is similar to the salt load/climate portion of the soil corrosion test procedure of the CETP 00.00-R-343 standard and yields relevant results.

The purpose of this test method is to allow assessment of the corrosion resistance of metals in environments where there is a significant effect of chloride ions, such as sodium chloride or winter road de-icing salt, primarily from a marine source. This test ensures that the material is fully exposed to the salt load and humidity environment. It does not attempt to simulate mud loads, temperature stresses or other factors such as wear. It serves as a general purpose atmospheric corrosion test and is applicable to various materials, coatings and interactions of materials, both as test specimens and in engineered components.

This test method can be used as a design verification method in order to:

  • Developing and qualifying new corrosion resistant products
  • Developing new pre-treatments and finishing processes
  • Choosing the materials
  • Quality control of the final product

This standard contains controlled conditions for equipment and procedures to allow testing to be performed with a high degree of repeatability. It is designed to be suitable for operation in various climatic chambers as a fully automatic procedure or with partial manual operations.

Briefly, the Ford CETP 00.00-L-467 cyclic corrosion test consists of alternating cycles of electrolyte (salt) exposure, a drying phase, and a moisture exposure phase. This is a control test and is used around the world to qualify components.

Accelerated corrosion testing has been used for many years as a tool to evaluate the performance of coatings where exposure to real conditions is neither practical nor available. Accelerated corrosion testing is generally defined as any test method in which results are obtained in a shorter time.

Accelerated cyclic corrosion test within the scope of CETP 00.00-L-467 standard, with its trained and expert staff and advanced technological equipment, among the numerous test, measurement, analysis and evaluation studies it has given for businesses in various sectors. services.
