What do you need to know to ensure the abrasives you use conform to SSPC standards? That's the subject of the latest free webinar from JPCL and SSPC.

Shop/Field Testing of Abrasives for Compliance to SSPC Abrasive Standards” will be presented at 11 a.m. ET Wednesday, Dec. 8, by Bill Corbett of KTA-Tator.

Corbett will explore the four SSPC Abrasive (AB) Standards, including AB 1 for mineral and slag abrasives, AB 2 for the cleanliness of recycled ferrous metallic abrasives, AB 3 for ferrous metallic abrasives and AB 4 for recyclable encapsulated abrasive media.

He will describe the conformance tests invoked for each of the standards as well as sampling frequencies. Additional “pre-production” field tests that may benefit the contractor (e.g., surface profile yield) will also be discussed.
