Surface preparation

• Steel must be blasted to a minimum cleanliness of Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPCSP10. For best performance and for highly corrosive conditions, blasting to Sa 3.0 / First Quality or SSPC-SP5 is recommended. A surface profile of 75 – 125 microns is required. To achieve the required profile, abrasive of sizes S240, G24 or larger recommended.

• After blasting, remove dust from the surface anf clean it.

• Apply Steelshield VE immediately after blasting to avoid oxidation and recontamination of the blasted steel surface. If case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.

Application procedure

Stir contents of the can thoroughly before use. Thinning is not usually required. However, if thinning is desired, do not exceed the recommended thinning ratio.
