Sean Fowler of testing and exposure service provider Q-Lab, located in Westlake, Ohio, was recently appointed vice-chairman of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group of TC156 for ISO. This group focuses on the corrosion of metals and alloys.

Some of the important corrosion standards covered by this committee are: ISO 9227 (corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres – salt spray tests) and ISO 16701 (accelerated corrosion in an alternating conditions of controlled humidity and salt spray), to name a few.

Fowler has worked with ISO, ASTM and other standards committees for many years. He is currently a technical marketing specialist at Q-Lab where he helps customers use weathering and corrosion testing technology to solve product durability concerns. Fowler was also instrumental in developing Q-Lab’s new Q-FOG CRH corrosion chamber—a breakthrough in price-performance for corrosion testers requiring RH control.
