Salt spray testing is the most widely practiced testing method for testing of automotive against normal environmental conditions, but the correlation between the test results of the salt spray test and real life corrosion of vehicle was not evident. Hence there was a need for a test in which vehicles could encounter simulated environments more close to real life conditions. This gave rise the cyclic corrosion testing, which could actually help identifying the life expectancy of an automobile under normal environmental conditions.
Fuel Resistance Test
Liquid fuels like petroleum and diesel are used to derive energy for operation and petroleum based products are used in the composition of motor oils in a vehicle. Therefore they are always prone to leakages and spillage of fuel and fuel based products. Fuels are highly flammable, hence it becomes inevitable for vehicle manufacturers to ensure that in case of spillage or leakage the vehicle is equipped to prevent potential ignition damage.
Salt Spray test
A large part of the automobiles are made up of metals like steel, aluminium and iron which often have to sustain the damage inflicted by environmental corrosive agents like water, moisture, mist, humidity and vapours. It is highly significant for vehicle manufacturers to ensure the quality of the metals and the protective coatings being used are durable enough to withstand these corrosive attacks.
Salt Fog Testing
Salt fog is a type of spray test in which a vehicle is kept in a chamber where it is sprayed with salt fog incessantly at a particular temperature. This helps to evaluate its resistance power against corrosive salts and helps to determine durability of the protective film applied on the body of the vehicle and its counterparts.
High Pressure Spray
A form of spray testing, high pressure spray, is a method of testing vehicles against forceful water spray. This method testing ensures that the vehicle and its components are sturdy enough to sustain this force and does not face any kind of breakdown or component failures in such situation.
Vehicles are highly prone to ignition as they are powered by fuel which is highly inflammable. Their internal components must be equipped sustain themselves in case of fire. Components like seat cushion, seat back, seat cover, seat belt, head rest, arm rest, movable convertible top, all decorative panels and many others must have the ability to safeguard themselves.
Colour Fastness Test
Over time the materials like textiles, leather and rexine used in seat covers, arm rests and decorative panels deteriorates and their colours fades and texture desecrates. This majorly hinders the look of the interiors. To ensure that the fabrics and materials being used maintains its colour and lustre for a long period of time.
Automobiles like any other substance or article needs cleaning and washing from time to time. Effective cleaning involves spraying of cleansing agents which contain strong alkaline substances. Spraying of alkaline cleansers on high pressure tends to wither the surface of anodized aluminium coating over the metallic bodies of the vehicles.
