Accelerated Environmental Testing
Consultant Lubricants utilizes an Accelerated Environmental Testing Cabinet as part of our in-house laboratory. We are able to run various ASTM Standard Methods including humidity and salt spray tests to analyze the water resistance of various coatings to help predict service life and prove the paint process is performing within specification.
These test results can be used to pre-qualify paint adhesion and salt spray resistance prior to submitting for 3rd party lab certification. Additional benefits include comparing corrosion protection of rust inhibitors on various materials and determining the level of corrosion protection your lubricant may require to match your manufacturing and storage processes. Common tests performed are: Standard Non-Condensing Humidity Test, ASTM B117-09 Salt Spray Test, ASTM D1748, ASTM D1735, ASTM D2247.
Our on-site analysis includes extensive data collection and collaboration with operators and engineers to improve your production efficiencies and/or identify the cause of your production problems. Our investigative techniques save you time and expense by allowing us to gather relative data in a timely and cost-effective manner.
