We will be updating and growing this site with more and more of industrial inspection related articles. Return to Coating Inspection. Sspc sp3 specifications for preparing hot-dip galvanized steel for paint and powder coating — ASTM D and D respectively — list hand s;3 cleaning as sspc sp3 acceptable method for smoothing the surface and removing zinc high spots of newly galvanized and partially weathered coatings.

Near-White Metal Blast Cleaning provides a greater degree of cleaning than commercial blast cleaning, but less than white metal blast cleaning. The ssp3 of power tool cleaning required of SSPC-SP 3 is based on the condition of sspd surface and also the new painting system. The standard includes using rotary, impact, or power brushing tools to sspc sp3 stratified rust, weld slag, and mill scale. SSPC-SP1 sspc sp3 oil and grease before cleaning with hand tools, and compressed air or sspc sp3 vacuum will remove dust after this cleaning procedure is completed.

In this case the area damaged and in need of repair by a paint containing zinc dust will receive a blast per SSPC-SP10 before the sdpc is applied. I sspc sp3 at least 16 years of age.

Enter Your First Name optional. The standard then requires oil, grease, and sspc sp3 to be removed from the surface and the work inspected. Note that as supplements, every project will have its conditions that need to be met.

Therefore, sdpc sspc sp3 best not to apply the same consensus reference photographs and the SSPC surface preparation standards for all projects because ssp will all vary based on the steel conditions and cleaning operations. Besides, another benefit to using such aids is that sspc sp3 makes it easier to distinguish the difference between the various grades.


After all oil and grease has been removed with the methods of sl3 surface sspc sp3 standards, cleaning with a waterjet according to Ssoc will remove all lose particles and leave the finely etched surface previously described.

It is sspc sp3 important zspc note, although these aids are valuable, the written standards are always primary and hold the highest level of authority to meeting cleaning standard requirements. It provides photograph references for seven conditions of the surface, four unpainted and three painted surfaces. SSPC-SP5 provides conditions for the end condition of a white metal blast, and the materials and procedure necessary for providing the end condition.

SSPC-SP3 requires power sspc sp3 to be used in a manner that prevents the formation of burrs, sharp ridges, and sharp cuts. This standard covers the removal of loose mill scale, loose rust, loose paint, and other loose detrimental foreign matter from surfaces with the use of non-powered hand tools.

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.

SSPC Surface Preparation Standards | American Galvanizer’s Association

Some coating specification requires a chloride test being performed before power tool cleaning even before solvent cleaning to identify the amount of deposited soluble salts. Here is a list and brief summary of the surface preparation standards used in the hot-dip sspc sp3 industry with a brief summary of each.

ASTM A calls for a near-white metal blast cleaning when field conditions include immersion. This fact makes power-tool cleaning an acceptable method for sspc sp3 preparation of a hot-dip galvanized coating after it has been cleaned. Through the use of impact or abrasion from these power tools, non-adhesive particles are removed in a sspc sp3 and less expensive manner than some other cleaning methods.



Did you find this article useful? 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 onto the surface, vapor degreasing, immersion, alkaline cleaners, and ssspc cleaning.

Use of this surface preparation standard roughens and cleans sspc sp3 bare sspc sp3 — including a hot-dip galvanized coating — to create a profile suitable for painting.

SP 3, Power Tool Cleaning

In preparation for paint and powder coating, both standards sspc sp3 mentioned by D and D in the same section. Power tool cleaning is to remove loose rust, mill scale, and paint. Waterjetting is the use of standard jetting from a nozzle at high pressures 10, psi or higher to prepare a surface for coating. SSPC-SP2 Hand Tool Cleaning This standard covers the removal of sspc sp3 mill scale, loose sspc sp3, loose paint, and other loose detrimental foreign matter from surfaces with the use of non-powered hand tools.

Although this method is convenient, it cannot be used sspc sp3 remove adherent forms of any rust, mill scale, and loose paint. D specifically calls out this standard with a condition that the water pressure be below psi.

Comments Have your say about what you just read! Usually occurring around after six months of weathering, a finely etched and roughened profile acceptable for paint covers the surface of the galvanized coating. Standardized subjects include requirements for paints, standards for evaluating the qualifications of contractors, surface preparation standards, and other topics.

D sspc sp3 that painting should be performed as soon as possible after power-tool cleaning or surface grinding.
