Rotation by slewing ring and hydraulic motor reduction gears or by racks and pinion. Microfissure Chrome Plating Through the electrolytic action, the cylinders stems are coated with several layers of chrome to obtain a thickness of microns which guarantees resistance in saline fog up to hours in accordance with ASTM B and extreme surface hardness. Thanks to these elements the process guarantees at least hours of resistance in saline fog ASTM B Bolts and screws are either in stainless steel or protected with Geomet plating. Geomet plating Many fixing components screws and bolts are protected from atmospheric agents and rust through a water-based liquid coating containing inorganic metals zinc and aluminium , named Geomet.

Engineering materials and composites are frequently exposed to aggressive and chemically toxic environments with high probability for rapid corrosion and consequent deterioration and catastrophic degradation. Occasionally, a new legislation regulates against the use of existing materials, necessitating thus development of new methodologies or new materials in order to reduce material corrosion rates.

The aim of this study is to test the corrosion resistance of the copper tin alloy, a material that could replace nickel compounds, recently reclassified as suspected carcinogens. Standard sizes of pre-cut nickel and brass panels were produced and then plated with different thicknesses of copper tin alloy and chromium for additional protection. Evaluation of plated materials for corrosion rate and resistance was carried out using linear polarisation, electrochemical impedance and accelerated destructive testing.

Corrosion testing of the materials assessed qualitatively and quantitatively, showed that corrosion resistance was dependent on a combination of factors, including the thickness of chromium plating, type of material, type of testing and duration in a corrosion chamber. While linear polarisation experiment was useful in establishing corrosion rate of sample, electrochemical impedance and accelerated destructive testing experiments assessed corrosion resistance of the materials.

Plating Testing

Historical Version s - view previous versions of standard. More B This practice covers the recommended method for rating the condition of electroplated test panels subjected to corrosive environments for test purposes. This method is used with standard-sized panels exposed on standard ASTM racks at outdoor test sites in both natural atmospheres and accelerated test conditions. Any modifications needed to adapt the method to rating actual production parts are not considered here. Panels shall be assigned separate rating numbers based on the ability of the coating to protect the substrate from corrosion protection rating , and the overall appearance of panels as affected by deterioration of the coating itself appearance rating.
