SSPC SP CAB 1
Abrasive Blast Cleaning of Concrete and Cementitious Materials SSPC-SP CAB 1 – Thorough Blast Cleaning
|Publication Date:||1 December 2019|
This standard defines the Thorough Blast Cleaning level of surface cleanliness achieved using abrasive blast cleaning. The standard includes requirements for the resulting condition of the surface as determined by visual inspection and materials and procedures used to achieve and verify the resulting condition.
This standard is limited to requirements for removal of visible surface contaminants and existing coatings from concrete surfaces, and procedures for verification. Specific requirements for concrete soundness, surface profile range, and repair of the substrate and any exposed reinforcing steel are beyond the scope of this standard.
The requirements of this standard are applicable to all types of concrete as defined in Section 2.2. If a visual guide or comparator is specified to supplement the written standard, determine the initial condition of the concrete prior to blast cleaning before the blast cleaning commences.
UNITS OF MEASURE: This standard provides both IEEE/ASTM(1) SI 10, "American National Standard for Metric Practice" International System Units (SI) and U.S. Customary units. The measurements are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Where both sets of units are shown, SI units are presented first, with approximate U.S. Customary values shown in parentheses.
