Electrochemical Tests

While all laboratory corrosion tests require accelerating corrosion processes, only electrochemical tests can directly amplify the impact of corrosion processes. The main reasons why this is possible is that all electrochemical tests use some fundamental model of the electrode kinetics associated with corrosion processes to quantify corrosion rates. The amplification of the electrical signals generated during these tests has permitted very precise and sensitive measurements to be carried out.
