Surface treatment by brine spray test method

Method of Salt Spray (Fog) Test for Surface Finishing

1. Scope of application: this standard stipulates that the metal substrates shall be sprayed with brine for surface treatment after electroplating, organic or inorganic coating, etc

Test method for corrosion resistance of fog.

2. Test method: this method is to spray the test solution of sodium chloride solution on the electroplating coating in a mist form by using the monitoring water spray testing machine

Corrosion test method for coated films.The main test conditions are shown in table 1.

Table 1 main test conditions

Remark in project preparation test

Concentration of sodium chloride solution (g/l) 50 40~60 * good calibration concentration once a day

PH 6.5 6.5~7.2 pH value in the test was determined after collection

Compressed air pressure (KGF /cm2)......1.00?0.01 continuous without interruption

Spray quantity (ml/80cm2 /h)......1.0~2.0 should be collected for at least 16 hours and averaged

Pressure drum temperature (℃)......47

Monitor bucket temperature (℃)......35

Laboratory temperature (℃)......35℃ Test at least twice a day, at least 7 hours apart

Laboratory relative humidity...Other humidity requirements above 85% shall be agreed by both parties

The duration of the test shall be the continuous period from the start of the spray to the end, or as agreed by the seller and the buyer.

3. Preparation of test solution: dissolve sodium chloride of test grade (1) in distilled water (or less than 200 PPM in total dissolved solids)

Is mixed into a concentration of 5 1% test fluid (2).After spraying the test liquid at 35℃,

The pH value of the collection solution should be 6.5~7.3 (3).The test fluid cannot contain suspension before spray

Object (4).

Note (1) : sodium chloride must not contain impurities of copper and nickel, and the solid content of sodium iodide must be less than 0.1%.Because in the impure

Corrosion inhibitors may be present, so the total impure content must be less than 0.3%.

(2) : the specific gravity of the test fluid should be 1.0258~1.0402 when measured at 33~35℃, and 1.0258~1.0402 when measured at 25℃

1.0292 ~ 1.0443.The concentration of the test solution can also be determined by silver nitrate solution titration or other methods.

(3) : the pH value of the test solution shall be adjusted by acid monitoring or sodium hydroxide dilute solution and measured by pH meter or other reliable method

Since the water used to prepare the test solution contains carbon dioxide, the solubility of carbon dioxide in the water changes with the temperature and affects the pH value of the solution,

Therefore, the pH value must be carefully controlled.The pH value can be adjusted in either of the following ways:

A. Prepare the test solution at room temperature and spray at 35℃. Part of the solution will escape due to the rising temperature

I'm going to raise the pH.Therefore, when preparing the test liquid at room temperature, the pH value should be adjusted within 6.5, so that it can be closed

The pH value of the collection is between 6.5 and 7.2

B. Before pH value adjustment, make the test solution boil and then cool to 35℃, or maintain the temperature at 35℃ for 48

The adjusted pH at 35℃ spray will not change much.

C. Heat the water above 35℃ to remove the dissolved carbon dioxide, and then adjust the test solution and pH value.So in 35 ℃

When spraying, the adjusted pH value does not change much.

(4) : in order to avoid spray nozzle obstruction, the test fluid must be filtered or carefully tilted into the brine barrel, or in front of the spray suction pipe

Install a glass filter or appropriate gauze.

4. Equipment: the equipment required for this test is spray nozzle, brine bucket, test sheet support rack, spray fluid collection container, laboratory (5),

A brine supply tank, a pressure tank, a compressed air supply device and an exhaust device are provided, as shown in figure 1

4.3 the test fluid dropped from the test sheet shall not be returned to the brine tank and shall be re-used for the test.

4.4 compressed air shall not contain grease and dust, so an air cleaner is required.Air pressure must be maintained at 1.00 0.01 KGF/cm2,

Since compressed air absorbs heat during expansion, preheating (6) is required, as shown in schedule 1, to obtain a uniform temperature spray.

Note (6) : preheat to increase the temperature and humidity of compressed air.

4.7 in the brine tank, the concentration of sodium chloride solution should be maintained at 40~60g/l.

4.8 the temperature of the pressure drum shall be maintained at 47?At 1℃, the temperature of brine barrel is 35?1 ℃.
