Aerofin Laboratories can conduct High Temperature Oxidation evaluation of test samples exposed to high temperatures.
High Temperature Oxidation (HTO) can lead to the deterioration of aluminium and its properties. High Temperature Oxidation is the diffusion of hydrogen at the materials surface at high temperatures.
At elevated temperatures contaminants such as sulfur decompose aluminium’s natural protective oxide layer. When this happens in the presence of moisture, hydrogen is diffused into the surface causing a corrosion blister.
