The standard then requires oil, grease, sspc sp3 dust to be removed from the surface and the work inspected. I understand that you will use my information to send me a newsletter. Removing all weld slag and stratified rust with impact tools, using non-impact methods such as scraping to remove all non-adherent materials, sspc sp3 feathering an adherent paint coating, are all hand tool cleaning methods accepted by this standard.

These consensus reference photographs are supplementary and sspc sp3 be used in conjunction with SSPC surface preparation standards to better accomplish the process of SSPC-SP 3 power tool cleaning. The standard also contains unique procedures for use on galvanized steel including inspection for a passivation treatment and wet sspc sp3 stain.

The surface shall be cleaned of oil, grease, and dust after the near-white metal blasting procedure.

Near-White Metal Blast Cleaning sspc sp3 a greater degree of cleaning than commercial blast cleaning, but less than white metal blast cleaning. Therefore, it is best not to apply the same consensus reference photographs and the Sspc sp3 surface preparation standards for all projects because they will ssp vary based on the steel conditions and cleaning operations.

When spot cleaning needs to be performed on the damaged coating and also on the surface-tolerant coating, such as oil-based paint SSPC-SP 3 power tool cleaning is recommended.

ASTM A calls for sspc sp3 near-white metal blast cleaning when field conditions include immersion. Always blow off the surface with clean, dry, oil-free compressed sspc sp3, brushing, or vacuum cleaning methods. D also considers the two methods interchangeable during the surface cleaning phase of the process.

The specification lists several different ways in which solvent cleaner may be applied to the surface including wiping or scrubbing the surface with solvent, spraying solvent directly sspc sp3 the surface, vapor degreasing, immersion, alkaline cleaners, and steam cleaning.

May 1, Authored by Daniel Barlow. A provided definition of a brush-off blast cleaned surface describes a surface free of all visible oil, grease, dirt, dust, loose mill scale, sspc sp3 rust, and loose coating when viewed without magnification.

Hand tool cleaning also acceptably cleans a hot-dip galvanized surface before surface profiling according to D Some coating specification requires a spsc test being performed before power tool cleaning even before solvent cleaning to identify the amount of deposited soluble salts.

After all oil and grease has been removed with the methods of another surface preparation standards, cleaning with a waterjet according to SSPC-SP12 will remove all lose particles and leave the finely etched surface previously described. Power abrading tools also acceptably remove mill scale according to the standard. Oil, grease, and sspc sp3 must be removed both before and after the cleaning procedure. Waterjetting sspc sp3 the use of standard sspc sp3 from a nozzle at sspc sp3 pressures 10, psi or higher to prepare a surface for coating.

Using good cleaning practices are essential to avoiding paint failure. Through the use of impact or abrasion from these power tools, non-adhesive particles are removed in a faster and less expensive sspc sp3 than some other cleaning methods. The degree of power tool cleaning required of SSPC-SP 3 is based on the condition of the surface and also the new painting system. Although this method is convenient, it cannot be used to remove adherent spsc of sspc sp3 rust, mill scale, and loose paint.

SP 3, Power Tool Cleaning

Consensus reference photographs are photographic aids sspc sp3 can assist in establishing the general appearance of the surface after SSPC-SP 3 power tool cleaning is performed. The brush off-blast cleaning procedure described in SSPC-SP16 provides an acceptable profile on hot-dip galvanized surfaces for the application of paint or powder coat. Power tool sspc sp3 has less particulate contamination than other forms of cleaning, such as abrasive blasting. A allows uncoated areas to be power-tool cleaned before ps3 with zinc rich paints in areas of less critical field sspc sp3 conditions.

This fact makes power-tool cleaning an acceptable method for sspc sp3 preparation of a hot-dip sspc sp3 coating after it has been cleaned. Here is a list and brief summary of the surface preparation standards used in the hot-dip galvanizing industry with a brief summary of each.

However, some rust remaining at the bottom of pits is acceptable if the surface was pitted to begin with. Return to Coating Inspection. Although photographic sspc sp3 can be part of the coating specification document, it can be difficult to compare surfaces with photographs. A white metal blast will remove all coatings, mill scale, rust, oxides, corrosion products, and all other foreign products sspc sp3 a steel surface.


They are considered interchangeable in their use of sspc sp3 the coating and removing zinc high spots before the zinc coating is further prepared. SSPC-SP1 removes oil and grease before cleaning with hand tools, and compressed air or a vacuum will remove dust after this cleaning procedure is completed. Grinding tools and impact tools are both acceptable means for achieving the level of cleaning specified.

A, however, does not specifically call out SSPC-SP3 for the sspc sp3 of a damaged coating for repair by zinc rich paints. Sspc sp3 surface preparation standard is similar to that some less aggressive blast cleans. Did you find this article useful? The surface may still include sspc sp3 and tightly adherent mill scale, rust, and coating. D states that painting should be performed as soon as possible after power-tool cleaning or surface grinding.

Therefore, the degree of power tool cleaning can also be identified through the conditions system provided in sspc sp3 SSPC visual consensus references. A surface profile of no less than one mill between peaks and valleys is required.

I am at least 16 years of age.

SSPC-SP 3 Power Tool Cleaning

Besides, another benefit to using such sspc sp3 is that it makes it easier to distinguish the difference between the various grades. What are these and which ones are important to the industry? However, A uses the white metal sspc sp3 as the surface preparation standard for repairing a zinc coating using sprayed zinc.

However, metals with an existing profile acceptable for painting can be cleaned with waterjetting to expose the existing profile. The standard lists dry abrasive blasting as the preferred method with wet blasting an option to be agreed upon between the two parties. Sspc sp3 blasting method cleans less aggressively than an industrial blast clean. Please subscribe to my monthly newsletter so you don’t miss a thing.
