b) c) d)

The substrate contains oil, grease, dirt, loose coating, loose rust, or other surface contaminants. The substrate temperature is less than 3°C (5°F) above the dew point (see Table I). Adverse weather conditions exist such as, but not restricted to, the following: 1) 2) Wind is strong enough to blow sand, salt spray, or other foreign matter onto the surface being coated. Wind is strong enough to cause dry spray or to otherwise seriously disturb the spray pattern when application is by spray gun.

6.1.2

When required, solvent cleaning shall be carried out in accordance with SSPC-SP1. Do not use kerosene, diesel, or other degreasers that leave an oily film unless the surface is subsequently cleaned with a non-greasy solvent or cleaner such SAP m/n 1000186759 (s/n 26-854-642), m/n 1000022130 (s/n 45-605-875) and m/n 45-605-875/880 (s/n 1000022131).

Temperature sensitive and self polymerization coating materials must be stored in air conditioned storage area to maintain the temperature as recommended in the Manufacturer's data sheet. Each coating container shall be clearly marked in accordance with 09-SAMSS-060. Coatings shall not be used from a container showing a sign of leakage.

Regardless of the type of abrasive, the sulfate content shall be less than 50 PPM, the chloride shall be less than 50 PPM, and calcium carbonate shall be 0.1 0% maximum by weight. The use of reclaimed slag abrasives is prohibited. The use of reclaimed garnet is permitted provided if it meets the requirements of CSDapproved recycling system.

Prior to blasting, rough welds and cut-offs shall be ground to a minimum radius to ensure proper coating application. Weld spatter shall be removed. Abrasive blasting shall be carried out only when the steel surface is at least 3°C (5°F) above the Dew Point as determined from Table I.

6.4.3 6.5

Equipment 6.5.1 Compressed air supply shall be free of oil, moisture and contamination. As a minimum, the inspector shall check and approve the air quality at the start and mid-point of each 8-hour period. This shall be determined as follows: Attach a piece of blotter or absorbent paper to a clip board, then hold it approximately 45-60 cm in front of the blast nozzle during air flow only, with a nozzle pressure of 388 kPa (50 psig) for approximately one minute.
