Corrosion Tests and Aging

At CEST we are well equipped for performing various corrosion tests, climate tests and aging procedures.

Complemented by our chemical analytical capabilities we are able to conduct full examinations of tested materials. Beside steel, aluminum and its alloys we of course also have lots of experience in non-iron metals e.g. copper, bronze or brass as well as specialty or composite materials.

Our customers range from automotive and aerospace industry via marine applications even to outdoor, lighting, architecture and construction.

A short list of popular tests and examinations are listed below.
