Abrasive Blast Cleaning - Unit 1.5: Pre-Surface Condition

Objective:

The objective of this training unit is to understand the importance of pre-surface condition requirements on steel surfaces and implications on 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.
