A CORROSION TEST FOR BRAKE TUBING

KORROSIONSPROVNINGSMETOD FOER BROMSROER

A new method has been developed for corrosion testing of brake tubing. The test which resembles service conditions is based upon exposure of specimens in a well-defined road mud containg 1.5% NaCl. The tubing is exposed in a climate chamber with an atmosphere of 95% rh and 0.7 ppm sulphur dioxide, the temperature being subject to cyclic variations between 30 and 50 degrees centigrade. Tube specimens made of the following materials have been tested: zinc-coated copper-brazed mild steel, stainless steel, copper and copper-nickel (90/10). The results show good correlation with service experience as regards both the life of the tubes and the type of corrosion attack. /TRRL/
