  • Whether or not sink marks on the surface of the material strap and round bar stock, and whether smooth or not in deformation wielding

E. Salt spray test standard

1)Brine preparation

Brine concentration used for the test should have a mass fraction of 5%. Thus the quality (weight) ratio between salt and water should be 5:95, i.e. five portions of salt diluted by ninety-five portions of water. Pay attention that salt should be dry enough, or the accuracy of a mass fraction will be affected. There is a strict requirement for water quality and PH value. Use an electronic scale to weigh in the preparation. Pay attention to the weight and accuracy of vessels.

2). Test

Put products in salt spray machine, observe every two hours and keep records.
