The experts in our electrochemical corrosion laboratory provide many ASTM standard tests as well as a variety of custom tests as you need. Most forms of corrosion are defined and limited by the electrochemical reactions occurring at the surface. Electrochemical testing can rapidly supply a wide range of corrosion and performance data for materials in many different applications*.
