Abrasive Blast Cleaning: Pre-Surface Condition

Objective:

The objective of this training unit is to recognize the importance of pre-surface condition requirements on steel surfaces and how these conditions will impact coating performance.

  • Coating performance is dependent upon the level of surface preparation.
  • Abrasive blast cleaning will NOT remove defects in the steel.
  • Pre-surface preparation is a requirement prior to the abrasive blast cleaning process.
