SSPC - VIS 3
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Power- and Hand-Tool Cleaning
|Publication Date:||1 July 2004|
This guide describes the use of reference photographs depicting the appearance of unpainted, painted, rusted, and welded hot-rolled carbon steel prior to and after power and hand tool cleaning. These photographs are intended to be used to supplement the written SSPC power and hand tool surface preparation standards. Due to variations in the condition of the steel to be cleaned, and the type and operation of the tool used, the appearance of the cleaned surface will vary, therefore, the written standards are the primary means to determine conformance with hand and power tool cleaning requirements. The photographs shall not be used as a substitute for the written standards (see Section 5.4.2).
