Another advantage of this method is the fact that allows obtaining any 3D geometry of the parts, even parts that cannot be processed through conventional manufacturing procedures. In this work were performed a number of tests for accelerated corrosion of AlSi10Mg alloy specimens in order to determine their mean life in the conditions of their use in a high salinity environment. For specimens, optical analysis was used the SEM microscope which has the advantage of obtaining an enlarged image of the investigated objects without processing. Following these analyses, it has been determined the mass loss of specimens due to corrosion.
