The new catalogue of corrosion tests is constantly being updated in order to expand the range of opportunities offered to customers in various market sectors such as automotive, furniture, metalworking and shipbuilding. Many companies manufacture products that, depending on the application, require different qualification tests and therefore need to perform corrosion tests according to the requirements found in manufacturers’ specifications.

The main change introduced in this period focuses on the salt spray test according to standard FIAT 50180 and ASTM G85.


The following are the main changes introduced in February 2024:


– ASTM D523: Standard Test Method for Specular Gloss

– ASTM G85: Standard Practice for Modified Salt Spray (Fog) Testing

– Fiat 50180 method A1: Corrosion test

– VDA 621-411: Cross Cut Adhesion Test.
