Ensure product reliability with Element's Mixed Flowing Gas (MFG) testing services for manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, consumer products, and medical device industries. By simulating real-world environmental exposure corrosion, we test the impact that gasses in the atmosphere have on your electrical components, identifying corrosion issues early to extend your product lifespan and enhance quality.

What is Mixed Flowing Gas Testing?

Mixed Flowing Gas (MFG) testing is a method used to evaluate the corrosion resistance of materials and electronic components under controlled environmental conditions. MFG testing services simulate real-world corrosion from environmental exposure conditions. By creating controlled test conditions, in which the temperature (°C), relative humidity (%RH), and concentration of gaseous pollutants and other essential variables are carefully defined, monitored, and controlled, Element allows you to evaluate how your product will perform.


Benefits of Mixed Flowing Gas Testing

  • Accurate Simulation: MFG replicates real-world environmental corrosion conditions to provide reliable data helping manufacturers gain insights into how their products will perform over time.
  • Quality Control: Element Mixed Flowing Gas Testing services helps improve product quality by identifying potential corrosion issues before products reach the market leading to enhanced product robustness and customer satisfaction.
  • Extended Lifespan: Element aids in prolonging the lifespan of electrical components by identifying and mitigating factors that cause premature failure.
  • Following Industry Standards: Element adheres to ASTM B827, ASTM B845, IEC 60068-2-60, and EIA-364-TP65A standards, ensuring that testing processes meet globally recognized benchmarks for reliability and accuracy.
  • Advanced Equipment: Element utilizes state-of-the-art chambers to control temperature, humidity, and gaseous pollutants precisely. This advanced technology allows for highly controlled and repeatable test conditions.

Extend Your Product Lifespan using Mixed Flowing Gas (MFG) Testing
