Thank you in advance for your prompt answer. However, the effectiveness of these cleaning operations may not be readily visible, and the presence of fine residual dust s that could interfere with coating adhesion can be checked for using a pressure sensitive tape pressed onto the blast cleaned surface. In the technical data sheets not the safety data sheets! What microns should be there after sand blasting.

Where can I get hold of this spec – SA 2. The sudden heating causes rust scales to flake off as a result of differential expansion between the scales and the steel surface. We gave an analogous example that strawberries can be sandblastong or dirty irrespective of the size sandblastibg the slices. Any re-rusting of the surface should be considered as a contaminant and be removed 2.55 re-blasting. When you speak of Ra you are speaking of surface profile, roughness or anchor pattern which is the peak to trough amplitude of the blast profile usually expressed and specified in microns and created during the blasting process this is usually measured with surface replica tape, surface comparators or surface profile needle gauges however surface profile is not an indication of the surface cleanliness do not get confused surface profile and surface cleanliness as depicted in ISO are separate requirements.

After the preparation of sandblssting surface to an acceptable standard of cleanliness and profile, it is important that the steelwork is not allowed to deteriorate. Preparing a job standard is a best practice for avoiding disputes:.

Could you tell the difference between rust grades A and B blasted to Sa3? One of my customers is asking for SA 2. Kenton, was thinking in microinches instead of microns, but upon re-examination microns were intended and Ra 6.


Hopefully someone who is sandblastig knowledgeable about this will answer, because I don’t see how you can measure things that are covered by Sa 2. The removal of rust from pitted steel is more easily effected by fine grades and, depending upon the condition of the steel surface, a mixture of grades may be required initially to break down and remove mill scale and clean in pitted areas.

Tools Report Error Did not Find. Very thorough blast cleaning. Is there any problem? But blasting would improve the protection and therefore is the preferred method.

The client needs to decide or be advised depending on the application what type of coating will be applied to the steel, this will decide the required blasting grade as specified by the coatings manufacturer the norm seems to be SA2. How to measure the profiles SA2,SA2.

Surface preparation –

What is the standard surface finish values e. I hope this helps s wondering about why you may not be getting the proper mil thickness after coating the blasted metal. In most countries it is forbidden anyway Stake out a sample area Prepare the surface to specification Get agreement from the stakeholders that the prepared sample meets the specification Apply a clear coating to preserve the appearance Surface preparation standards provide a basis for a service level agreement between blasters, contractors, inspectors and project owners.

Any aluminium metal spray on surfaces in contact with concrete needs to receive at least one coat of paint to prevent the reaction that may occur between concrete and aluminium. However, to best serve your needs, your information may be shared with Graco’s distributor partners.

At outside arrises i. This correction value has to be added to the applied thickness and can cause real problems e. What is the importance of surface preparation per SA 2. This aandblasting involves mechanical cleaning by the continuous impact of abrasive particles at high velocities on to the steel surface either in a jet stream of compressed air or by centrifugal impellers. Near White is typically specified for high performance coatings over steel exposed to severe environmental conditions, sanddblasting as chemical spills and fumes, high humidity, and proximity to salt water.


It has been blasted and primed before use.

My boss always asks me and I cannot answer. I just found a few question to answer, so here’s a supplement For example I have got a metal piece and I’m zandblasting to shotblast it to SA 2. Dear Sir, Thanks a lot for providing such informative things. The blast sandbllasting operation produces large quantities of dust and debris that must be removed from the abraded surface.

I understand from reading the posts that we need to differentiate between surface cleanliness and surface profile. Please respond as early as possible. It has the advantage of not generating spent abrasive and not incurring the cost of abrasive disposal. Contact a Blasting Expert We hereby confirm receipt of ssa message and will contact you shortly Thank you for your inquiry. So the grades acc. Conventional wet abrasive blast cleaning uses the same pressures as for conventional dry blasting and similar equipment.

If not, which kind of sand do we use?

Sir, required profile is 40 to 70 micron but after blast clean profile is micron. For example, older air-power wrenches tend to produce a fine oily or misty exhaust which may settle on the surface.

SA 2.5 Sand Blasting Steel Plate

Although the standard provides a method of checking for dust, there are no recommendations for acceptable levels.

The blasted surface must have a uniform metallic colour.

So please send answer as soon as you can. Thanks for the information that SA 2. ISO has no corresponding specification. 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.
