The Pacific General Purpose Hand Winches are compact, lightweight and a cost-effective solution for a variety of applications. They can be supplied with a powder-coated finish, depending on your application.
The Salt Spray Test is an international standardised test method used to check the corrosion resistance of coated samples. Protective coatings provide corrosion resistance to metallic parts made of steel, zinc and aluminium alloys or brass. Since these coatings can provide a high corrosion resistance through the intended life of the part in use, it is necessary to check this by other means than normal outside exposure. The Salt Spray Test produces an accelerated corrosive attack to the coated samples, in order to predict its suitability in use as a protective finish. The appearance of corrosion products (i.e. rust) is evaluated after a period of time. Test duration depends on the resistance of the coating; the more resistant the coating is, the longer the period in testing without showing signs of corrosion. After 1,000 hours of the Salt Spray Test, the Pacific General Purpose Hand Winches did not show any sign of corrosion and the coating was still intact.
