CCX Advanced Cyclic Corrosion Cabinet

The CCX is the most advanced, sophisticated and versatile laboratory corrosion testing cabinet. With installed options, it can replicate up to 15 environmental conditions, placing powerful capability in the hands of the user. 

Advanced cyclic tests are used to qualify a specific coating or material for a wide range of end uses, to quickly qualify a coating or material on a pass-fail basis, to predict service life or determine the probability of corrosion of a specific material.

Applications include: Aerospace, Automotive, Research, Electronics, Government, Military, Paints/Coatings, Robotics, and Telecommunications.
