Surface preparation

  • Remove wax, oil and grease from the surface by solvent cleaning in accordance to guidelines given by SSPC-SP1.
  • Dry brushing to remove soluble salts, dirt and dust.
  • Ensure that freshwater jetting is carried out to remove all loose contaminants and soluble salt deposition.
  • Remove scale by chipping, needle gun or spot blasting. Any loose or flaking aged coatings should be taken back to a firm edge.
  • Mechanically clean the surface using hand or power tools to a minimum standard of St 2 (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP2 taking care to avoid polishing the surface.
  • Wherever necessary remove weld spatter and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to a smooth surface.
