Q-Lab, a global provider of weathering and corrosion test equipment, has introduced the Q-FOG CRH cyclic corrosion testers, designed to perform traditional salt spray, Prohesion and most cyclic automotive tests.

The Q-FOG tester allows users to cycle through "all of the most significant corrosion environments" in one chamber, the manufacturer says. Complex, multi-step test cycles can be programmed with the controller, allowing the tester to reproduce months or years of damaging conditions in days or weeks.
