Title (EN) CORROSION RESISTANCE EVALUATOR
(FR) ÉVALUATEUR DE RÉSISTANCE À LA CORROSION
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention is directed to a corrosion resistance evaluator suitable for corrosion testing coated metals substrates, such as autobodies. A corrosion resistance evaluator provided with a chamber containing electrolyte to which anode and cathode coated with protective coating being tested are exposed. These coatings are provided with predetermined and standardized defects, such as micro- holes to accelerate the corrosion of the underlying metal substrate in a predictable and repeatable manner. The coated cathode/anode pair is subject to a start-up period followed by series preset DC voltages for preset durations that are interspaced with recovery periods. The impedance date collected is then used to arrive at the corrosion performance resistance of the coating applied over the cathode/anode pair. The foregoing evaluator substantially reduces the time required to test corrosion from several days (40 plus days) to few days (about two days).
(FR) L'invention concerne un évaluateur de résistance à la corrosion approprié à des essais de corrosion sur des substrats métalliques recouverts d'un revêtement, tels que des carrosseries automobiles. L'évaluateur de résistance à la corrosion est pourvu d'une chambre contenant un électrolyte auquel sont exposées, au cours de l'essai, une anode et une cathode recouvertes d'un revêtement de protection. Ces revêtements présentent des défauts prédéfinis et standardisés, tels que des micro trous, de façon à accélérer la corrosion du substrat métallique sous-jacent de manière prévisible et répétitive. La paire cathode/anode recouverte d'un revêtement est soumise à une période de démarrage suivi d'une série de tensions de courant continu prédéfinies, sur des durées prédéfinies, qui sont intercalées avec des périodes de restauration. Les données d'impédance collectées sont ensuite utilisées pour parvenir à une performance de résistance à la corrosion du revêtement appliqué sur la paire cathode/anode. L'évaluateur précité réduit sensiblement le temps requis pour tester la corrosion, de plusieurs jours (40 jours et plus) à quelques jours (environ deux jours).
