Accelerated weathering is a useful predictor of performance under real world conditions. While there is no direct correlation between chamber time and years of exposure, simulating corrosive conditions will give you insight into the future lifespan of your goods and materials.
The accelerated weathering group performs a variety of tests designed to simulate the effects of various environmental conditions on raw materials, components and finished products.
We offer salt spray testing, cyclic corrosion, humidity testing, SO2/CO2 and much more. IMR's corrosion lab also offers the additional services you need to meet your qualification packages, such as wet tape adhesion, taber abrasion, photography & visual inspections.
We specialize in evaluating products before, during, and after exposure. We've performed corrosion testing on a variety of panels and small parts such as nuts and bolts as well as finished products such as kitchen goods and medical devices.
We can test to many specifications including ASTM, ISO and manufacturer specifications.
