Methods for acceleration of ageing and corrosion tests.

Methods for acceleration of ageing and corrosion tests.
creation of new and improved methods by laboratory testing of specimens, and comparisons with results from experiences of specimens used in field.

The aim is to create new and improved methods by laboratory testing of specimens, and comparisons with result from experiences of specimens used in the field. Acceleration of corrosion and ageing tests is not an easy task. Time-consuming tests and many times doubtful results are common. We suggest a project with a broad approach in this area. This proposal is intended to be a general project for corrosion and ageing of products and materials, mainly concerning electronics. This project is suitable for any product facing possible problems with chemical environments and ageing. Any type of service, size and environment, will be considered. It would be an advantage for all possible participants to collect all interesting cases in one project. One of the goals with this approach is to give participants broader experience in this area. The project consists of three parts. 1. Development of life time prediction method using pre-contamination followed by environmental treatment. Further development of a current method with pre-contamination of specimens used for mobile phones. This method could be made general to be suited for other product areas, as for instance electronics in road vehicles. 2. Development of High Accelerated Corrosion Tests based on ISO 21207. 3. Development of HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Test/Testing) methods based on salt tests and other contaminants.
