SSPC SP 11
Power-Tool Cleaning to Bare Metal
|Publication Date:||19 July 2012|
This standard contains the requirements for powertool cleaning steel to produce a bare metal power tool cleaned surface having a minimum 25-micrometer (1.0-mil) surface profile.
This standard is suitable where a roughened, clean, bare metal surface as defined in Section 2.1 is required, but where abrasive blasting is not feasible or permissible (see Notes 8.1 and 8.2).
This standard differs from SSPC-SP 3, Power-Tool Cleaning, in that SSPC-SP 3 requires the removal of loosely adherent materials only, and contains no requirement to expose bare metal or to achieve a minimum surface profile.
This standard differs from SSPC-SP 15, Commercial Grade Power-Tool Cleaning, in that SSPC-SP 15 allows stains to remain on the surface.
