Exposure to artificial light, especially to UV, is a particular aspect of climatic tests. Particularly suitable for checking the behaviour of leathers, polymers or textiles, colour changes in items will be detected by comparison, or quantified by colorimetry.
Among the various existing corrosion tests, the main ones we offer are salt spray tests, sulphur agent tests and synthetic sweat tests.
The test pieces are placed in a test chamber, in which a saline solution is vaporised at a certain temperature. The test can be performed continuously, or not. Since corrosion is a complex phenomenon, the test does not represent a simulation of reality. However, it is a very widespread method in the industry, used for improving and validating the behaviour of a variety of metal items.
These tests involve qualifying the resistance of items to sulphur compounds which can be found in the environment.
This type of test is specifically tailored to watch exterior components in contact with the skin, as well as to jewellery items. It is used to detect any development of metal corrosion phenomena due to contact with sweat.
