Surface Preparation

  • Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from grease, oil and any other contaminates.
  • Bare steel should be free from dust, rust and scale.
  • Blast cleaning to SA 2½ is recommended.
  • If blast cleaning is impractical, mechanical cleaning should be employed as hand cleaning does not clean the steel to the required degree.
  • Any oil or grease should be removed with Coo-Var Universal Degreaser before de-rusting.
  • Where blast cleaning is carried out after assembly, special attention must be paid to edges, corners, nuts, bolts, welds etc.
  • Welds should, if necessary be ground and all weld spatter, slag etc. must be removed.
