Waterjetting—New Standards for Assessing End Condition CleanlinessSponsored by NLB Register Now

Monday, July 9, 2012; 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern
Cost: FREE

The current version of SSPC-SP 12/NACE No. 5, “Surface Preparation and Cleaning of Metals by Waterjetting Prior to Recoating (originally published in 2002), is somewhat different than the other SSPC/NACE Joint Surface Preparation Standards, in that it is comprised of 4 levels of surface cleanliness (WJ-1 through WJ-4) and three degrees of flash rust (as opposed to a single definition of surface cleanliness. Four new standards are being prepared, one for each of the WJ definitions. This presentation will address the new standards, and the value of experience and training in assessing end conditions and precautions when specifying cleaning pressures.
