How does an immersion test work?

A product is placed in a tank containing the respective liquid for a predetermined time, and specific temperature. At the end of the test cycle, we assess the surface of the tested material for blistering and other visible changes. This immersion test is suitable for:

  • Metal surfaces with an organic coating;
  • Metal surfaces with a galvanic coating;
  • Metal surfaces without a coating;
  • Wooden surfaces with a coating;
  • Plastic surfaces with a coating.

After reading the report, you may still need advice on how to improve the quality of the product.
