Description

Chemical preparation:

Sablage au Jet 2000 has expertise in relation to different chemical preparation methods according to recognized standards.

Mechanical preparation:

this type of preparation is used regularly when chemical preparation or by abrasive projection cannot be used or simply when specified by the customer

Abrasive blasting:

Surface preparation by high speed abrasive blasting (commonly known as sandblasting). A wide variety of media can be used with this technique, depending on the alloy of the metal and second stage surface protection if required.

Degreasing with solvent is performed to remove all traces of oil, grease, dirt and other contaminants on steel surfaces.
- SSPC-SP-2, Manual Cleaning
Manual cleaning of steel surfaces is performed using non-mechanical tools.
- SSPC-SP-3, Mechanical cleaning
The mechanical cleaning of steel surfaces is performed using tools.
- SSPC-SP-5/NACE No. 1, Blank Shot
The surface is examined without the aid of a magnifying glass, shows no traces of oil, grease, dirt, dust, mill scale, rust or paint.
