Surface preparation

  • Remove all wax, oil and grease by solvent cleaning in accordance with the guidelines given by SSPC-SP1.
    Wherever necessary remove weld spatter, round off all rough weld seams and smoothens sharp edges.
  • Abrasive blast clean to a minimum standard of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP10.
  • An average surface profile of 50 microns is acceptable, but this average should not exceed 75 microns.
  • Ensure that all surface defects detected after blast cleaning is ground, filled or treated in a suitable manner.
  • After blasting, remove dust from the surface.
  • Ensure that the surface to be coated is clean, dry and free from any contaminants.
  • Apply Epilux 78 immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. In case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.
