Corrosion Testing

Materials Technology Associates (MTA) specializes in the use of electrochemical techniques to study corrosion problems, and to evaluate the corrosion resistance of a wide range of materials from carbon steel and stainless steel to titanium and tantalum.

Our corrosion lab includes a Gamry potentiostat and a number of corrosion cells, which allows us to test a wide range of sample configurations. Temperature for all tests is controlled utilizing chillers and water baths.

Corrosion tests are carried out in accordance with ASTM or SEMI standards, but can be modified to study specific problems according to customer needs. A small sampling of the tests we can provide is listed below.

Please contact us with any of your corrosion testing needs, and we will be happy to put together a test plan for you.

Standard tests include:


Laboratory Immersion Corrosion Testing of Metals


Pitting and Crevice Corrosion Testing of Stainless Steels in Ferric Chloride


Potentiodynamic Polarization Resistance


SEMI F77Electrochemical Critical Pitting Temperature Testing of Stainless Steels

Potentiostat and corrosion test cell

Experimental setup for corrosion testing of some medical devices

Corrosion test cell for coupons of plate material
