This training program is beneficial for operators of accelerated corrosion tests and supervisors of metal finishing shops and captive shops that have in-house corrosion testing capability or that outsource testing to outside laboratories. The course is also beneficial to sales personnel serving the metal finishing industry, as it covers valuable information about the corrosion resistance of various coatings.
The goal of this course is to provide the student with a general knowledge of common corrosion mechanisms, how they are employed in accelerated corrosion tests, and best operating practices for conducting accelerated corrosion testing.
At the conclusion of this course, attendees can expect to:
- Understand basic corrosion mechanisms involved in accelerated corrosion tests.
- Understand the levels of corrosion protection afforded by commonly applied electroplated deposits.
- Understand equipment used for salt spray and other accelerated corrosion tests, along with best operating practices.
- Have a basic understanding of the differences between the common alternative accelerated corrosion tests such as CASS, Corrodkote, Acetic Acid and Kesternich tests.
- Be able to identify and correct the most commonly encountered causes of salt spray failures.
- Be prepared to take the examination, which is part of the Foundation MSF certification program.
