This is a great article. Maybe I missed something, but it does not describe one of the more significant advantages of hand-tool cleaning, especially in the oil & gas and petrochemical industries. Although cost and dust reduction are key, the ability to prepare a substrate for remedial work with hand-tools allows for work to proceed in areas where it may otherwise not be possible. Hot work in hazardous areas, or work that may produce sparks, is limiting in these industries when a unit is in service. Being able to use these tools without sparks, allows us to keep equipment in service (with little or no down-time) and protect them from further corrosion attack. On another note, although the optimum surface preparation is mentioned (blasting to bare metal), another in-between not described is the use of power tools. These, where possible, can provide similar cost-savings as can the hand-tools, with fewer burdens on the contractor. Thought both of those are important and should be included. -Robert Cameron (Belzona Houston)

I would appreciate if someone could suggest the name of a long oil red oxide metal primer. I ‘ve been using an excellent product manufactured by Metal Clad, 8496 Akyd Metal Primer which is now discontinued. I’ve also tried Kromik Primer from Sherwin Williams, it is not bad under certain conditions but it is a bit problematic applying it on hot days, it tends to “drag-on” and becomes “jelly” when exposed to the sun…any suggestions? It would be interesting to hear from Metal Clad and find out why they removed an excellent product from their inventory, my municipality purchased a lot of this material, in fact it was the ONLY Red Oxide we ever used because of its qualities and performance

For Car F.: One product is called "Rust Stop" (manufacturer unknown) Another one is Rustoleum "Heavy Rust Primer". A high quality Red Oxide primer usually runs about $25/qt. or $100/gal. Both have a smooth flow-out when brushing. Only buy what you need for the job because they skin-up badly no matter how well you clean and seal the can.
