Corrosion prevention begins with education. The lack of quality inspection can lead to many coating failures, but the number one cause of coating failure is inadequate surface preparation. You can rest assured that MIS puts a high priority on surface preparation. Method specified are followed with no exceptions.
Recommendations for surface preparation and coating systems can be asked for in advance, and we will involve the coating manufacturer for their opinion. The options will be made available for the customer, and the customer can decide on the system based on investment and the expected service life of the system.
MIS can provide all of your wet and dry abrasive blasting needs from traditional to more high-tech, eco-friendly, and even recyclable abrasives to help meet your project's specific needs whether they be on-site or off-site wet blast system to control dust.
All methods are available in the shop or in the field.
NACE#5/ SSPC Sp12 is the joint standard that covers water jetting. Water jetting means the use of water alone to prepare the surface in a more environmentally-friendly manner. This surface preparation method will not produce a profile, but it will expose a profile if there is one already established from previous abrasive blasting. This method of surface preparation can even remove mill scale using the ultra-high pressure range, while low-pressure water cleaning is the pressure range used most often for cleaning chalk off of existing coatings.
The main concern is the hazards of a possible life-threatening injection of water, therefore, all employees have adequate training prior to using any of the equipment. The current water jetting surface preparation standards have four different visible levels of surface cleanliness and three levels of cleanliness for nonvisible contaminates. While the surface cleanliness is a visual standard, the nonvisible contaminates can be checked using various test methods.
Questions Regarding the level of cleanliness required for your project can be directed to any of our NACE-certified staff.
