Each standard is divided into four standards of cleanliness, broadly described as follows; brush sandbalsting, commercial, near white metal, white metal. For example, older air-power wrenches tend to produce a fine oily or misty exhaust which may settle on the surface. Conventional wet abrasive blast cleaning uses the same pressures as for conventional dry blasting and similar equipment.

After the preparation of the surface to an acceptable sandblaeting of cleanliness and profile, it is important that the steelwork is not allowed to deteriorate. Injecting small amounts of abrasive into the water stream can induce a rougher surface profile but can also increase asndblasting costs.

It is important to establish whether any remaining traces of such inhibitors will be compatible with the paint coating to be applied subsequently. We have sqndblasting relationship shipping company to help you get the most cheap freight. Preparing a job standard is a best practice for avoiding disputes:. The most common method — and the least effective — is washing with soap, water and a rag. Modern facilities of this type use several wheels, typically 4 to 8, configured to treat all the surfaces of the steel being cleaned.


It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. Regards, Ted Mooney, P.

SA 2.5 Sand Blasting Steel Plate

My understanding is that the full details are covered by specification SSavailable from the Swedish Standards Institute at www. Where it is not possible to clean by abrasive blastinghand and power tool methods may be the only acceptable alternative methods. The Society for Steel Painting Structures formed around the standards. I need to know the technical details about the following- Surface preparation – Mild steel part the surface needs to be prepared by sand blasting as per Swedish StandardSA 2.

The tape, along with any dust adhering to it, is then placed on a white background and wandblasting to a pictorial rating.

Swedish Standard SA shot blasting / surface prep

If I will do shot blasting with 1. Roughness surface profile is judged according ISO to 5, yet the only real mobile method is the comparator procedure acc. As per customer, requirement is sa2. Meaning that if you do not conform to the specifications you will probably not achieve the surface finish or life span that the process is designed to produce.

Sand blasting standards: Swedish SA 1, SA 2, SA 2.5, SA 3 vs. NACE and Ra

There are also Indian standards. To add to Ted’s answer. Packaging Details Bundling or as require. In most countries it is forbidden anyway I hope the above info is useful to you. Where can I get hold of this spec – SA 2.

Ultra high water pressure blasting. Using the Standards ISO is a pictorial standard containing reference photographs that illustrate what each blast specification looks like on a variety of rust grades and initial conditions. Also, I see specifications from customers that stipulate different Ra ranges for carbon steel and stainless steel for the same paint system and DFT – why is this appropriate if the DFT is consistent? Roughness on blasted surfaces depends on the abrasive used and the material blasted.


November 1, A. For a few years roughness is considered for DFT measurement acc. However, if the DFT is quite high, the underlying Ra is less noticeable. Sir, required profile is 40 to 70 micron but after blast clean profile is micron.

The performance of a coating is significantly influenced by its ability to adhere properly to the substrate material.

You will still get a surface that will accept a secondary process; however, the over all results will fail the time element. Blasting metal surface using garnetfinished with rust spots. This method can produce a high visual standard of cleaning and is effective in removing a high proportion of soluble salts. What will happen if I apply primer and paint within micrometers thickness but shotblast isn’t SA 2. Brush Off is specified to remove loose rust, mill scale and coatings, and uniformly roughen up a surface in preparation for a new coat.

Network Rail specifies a minimum radius of 3mm and this is considered by some steelwork contractors to be an onerous requirement. We cannot apply on 70 Micron Roughness surface.
