Introduction to the coastal environment of Taiwan Orchid Island Marine Exposure Test Site


Orchid Island possesses beautiful scenery and rich natural resources. It is located in the coastal island-type climate with high temperature, high humidity and high salt damage, as well as ocean wind, northeast monsoon and typhoon. Such kind of climate is classified as typical ISO 9223 C5, the highest corrosive working environment. We set up this "Marine Exposure Test Site" in 2016 with the worst and severest coastal wind environment, carrying out long-term verification work for marine corrosion resistance on each testing specification.
