In February 2019 TQC Sheen has acquired C&W Specialist Equipment Ltd. C&W’s accelerated corrosion & environmental test chambers provide various controlled environments for testing products used throughout the industrial world. They provide precise simulations to establish how components will perform when exposed to natural weathering elements.
Salt Spray cabinets
Salt Spray cabinets are widely used to test components and coated panels for corrosion resistance throughout the automotive, paint, surface coating, chemical, aerospace, electronic, offshore and defence industries. Salt Spray Tests and found in various. forms in many National, lnternational and Corporate Standards, C&W cabinets are designed to meet and exceed these stringent requirements.
Technical Specifications Salt Spray Cabinets
C&W humidity cabinets are designed to reproduce test conditions of high humidity at constant or cycling temperatures.
The test chamber environment is created by water being heated to precise temperatures to generate the production of water vapour.
The water vapour saturates the air in the test area which is constantly being circulated by the internal fan to ensure even distribution.
The test panels or components are enveloped in the moisture enriched air, allowing the water to be absorbed by the coating and oxidising with the base metal resulting in either blistering of the coating or the formation of red rust or oxidisation on a non–ferrous metal. This test is used to reproduce the exposure to naturally occurring condensation or by cycling the temperature, in the cabinet dew formation can be produced.

Cyclic Corrosion Test Cabinets
Pioneered by C&W Initially for the growing demands of the automotive Industry, these cabinets are now widely used by the paint, chemical, surface coating, aerospace, offshore and defence industries throughout the world.
The cabinets are designed to operate to any one or any combination of the following conditions in any sequence for any pre-set time.
Salt spray – Humidity – Dry heat – Air drying – Humidity – Dwell and ramp functions

Humidity Conditioning Cabinets
C & W Humidity Conditioning Cabinets are designed to meet the Environmental testing requirements of the paint, plastic, packaging, paper, board, electronic, automotive, aerospace, military, textile and telecommunications industries.
The units function as variable humidity, temperature humidity, environmental, climatic or conditioning cabinets. Temperature and humidity testing and product conditioning is of vital importance to the research chemist, development engineer and quality assurance manager to ensure the product is researched developed and manufactured to a standard guaranteed to survive the environment for which it is designed.
