What is TQC Bresle Patch use for
TQC Bresle Patch is used to test the salt contaminants on the surface.
Salt contamination on surface may cause major problems, and also increase maintenance costs. Bresle test commonly use in shipping, vessels, ballast tanks, oil and gas piping, industry buildings and steel structures in general. Coating failure such as blistering and corrosion may be the result of a too high level of salt prior to painting. The Bresle Method described in the ISO 8502-6 is commonly used to measure the level of surface salts prior to coating. A so-called bresle patch (a small self-adhesive plastic patch) with a washed latex membrane and a known surface area is used to dissolve the soluble salts.

TQC Round Patch will Prevent maintenance costs
High level of salts may cause coating failures like blistering and corrosion. This might cause major problems and increase maintenance costs for shipping, vessels, ballast tanks, oil and gas piping, industry buildings and steel structures in general. That’s why measuring the level of salts prior to coating is essential.
