TurtleSkin WaterArmor personal protective equipment offers increased water jet protection at all pressures at specified flow rates for UHP waterblasting operators using straight or rotary nozzles.

Since 1985, SSPC has issued three versions of the WaterJetting Surface Preparation Standards and two Visual Guides. Lydia Frenzel will explain the steps involved in moving from abrasive blast cleaning to waterjet cleaning and how our understanding of the basics – profile, degrees of visible cleanliness and non-visible contaminants – has progressed to focus on what makes a coating adhere and perform as expected. Frenzel will also cover changes over the years in personal protective equipment. Participants will be eligible to receive credit from SSPC.
