Bresle Patches TQC

TQC Bresle Kit – Chloride Test Kit complies with the ISO 8502-6 and ISO 8502-9 standards.

ISO 8502-6 and ISO 8502-9 describe, that the Bresle Method to assess the level of soluble salts by using a Bresle patch or Bresle sampler, distilled water and a conductivity gauge. The conductivity is mainly directly proportional to the concentration of dissolved chloride ions in the solution. TQC Bresle kit includes all the necessary equipment to execute a bresle test, that will indicate the contamination of soluble salts on blast-cleaned surfaces prior to coating. Inside the TQC Bresle Kit – Chloride Test Kit is a conductivity gauge, used for the assessment of soluble salt ions as chlorides, sulphates and nitrates.


TQC Bresle Patches

TQC Bresle Patches is used to test the salt contaminants on the surface, which may cause major problems. And it 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.

New Tqc Bresle Patch

The new TQC Sheen Bresle Patch is stronger, whilst at the same time has a clean removal, negligible patch contamination, no breaking foam and is silicone-free. TQC Sheen Bresle patch conform ISO 8502-6 is a round self-adhesive plastic patch with a medical grade membrane and a known surface area. Due to the round shape it is stronger, whilst at the same time the patch has a clean removal, negligible patch contamination, no breaking foam and is silicon free. Each patch is certified and traceable. This unique Bresle patch is tested by global coating industry leaders
