We provide specialist Kesternich testing (sulphur dioxide testing) services for a range of metals and metal plated components. Resistance to corrosion is measured in Kesternich cycling.
Acid rain and acidic industrial pollutants are corrosive and can degrade coatings and plated surfaces. Kesternich testing simulates these environments to evaluate the corrosion resistance of the coating substrate or part itself.
Parts or panels are placed inside a specially designed chamber and are exposed to SO2. The chamber in use at CBE+ Laboratories meets the highest safety standards and allows us to create the perfect conditions to carry out accurate and controlled Kesternich testing. The dosing of the SO2 gas is controlled during the test to accurately simulate exposure to chemicals that may be met in natural environments. An evaluation is then carried out to determine the level of corrosion resistance.
Our Kesternich testing services are available to customers worldwide.
Whether you have a specific project in mind or simply want to find out more about our approach and capabilities, we would be delighted to hear from you.01246 529014 Williamthorpe Industrial Park, Holmewood, Chesterfield S42 5UZ
