SSPC VIS Book PICTORIAL SURFACE
SSPC – VIS 1 PICTORIAL SURFACE STANDARD DRY BLAST CLEANING
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Dry Abrasive Blast Cleaning. SSPC’s most widely used visual reference features over 50 full-color photos of previously coated, and uncoated, rusted steel surfaces before and after dry abrasive blast cleaning.
Similar to the Swedish and British standards, but the pictures of the required final appearances match the written descriptions in the USA standards.
Cleanliness requirements for conditions depicted are defined by the SSPC surface preparation specifications:
- white metal (SP 5)
- Near-white (SP 10)
- Commercial (SP 6)
- Industrial (SP 14)
- Brush-off (SP 7) blast finishes.
Appendix photographs show variations in white metal surfaces caused by different metallic and non-metallic abrasives, profile depth, angle of view, and lighting. Now with guides in both English and Spanish!
SSPC-VIS 2 PICTORIAL RUST STANDARD
Standard Method of Evaluating Degree of Rusting on Painted Steel Surfaces. SSPC’s popular rust standard features a series of 27 full color images and 27 black and white diagrams representing various degrees of spot, general, and also pinpoint rusting on painted steel surfaces.
Text and tables provide a guide to the use of the reference photographs; a scale and description of standard rust grades; a comparison of SSPC, ASTM, ISO, and other rust grade scales; and also other useful information.
SSPC -VIS 3 PICTORIAL SURFACE STANDARD HAND | POWER TOOL
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Hand and Power Tool Cleaning. Contains a series of 43 full-color reference photographs. That to be used as a supplement to the SSPC standards for hand, and power tool cleaned steel.
Shows a total of seven different steel surfaces (four uncoated and three previously coated). Before and after hand tool cleaning (SP 2). Power tool cleaning with power wire brushes and sanding discs (SP 3). Power tool cleaning to bare metal (SP 11). And commercial grade power tool cleaning (SP 15). Also contains photos of SP 11 surfaces with a restored profile, a revised guide to the use of reference photographs, a new table of standards and conditions depicted, and additional explanatory notes.
SSPC -VIS 4|NACE VIS 7 PICTORIAL STANDARD WATERJETTING
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Waterjetting. Shows a total of six different steel surfaces (two uncoated and four previously coated) before and after waterjetting. Photographs illustrate four separate degrees of cleaning (WJ 1, WJ 2, WJ 3, and WJ 4).
For each initial condition, with additional photos that depict the appearance light, moderate, and finally heavy flash rust after cleaning.
Also contains a written guide to the use of reference photographs and additional explanatory notes. Cleanliness requirements for conditions depicted are defined by the joint SSPC/NACE surface preparation specification for both high- and ultrahigh-pressure water jetting (SP 12/NACE 5).
SSPC -VIS 5|NACE VIS 9 WET ABRASIVE BLAST CLEANING
Guide and Reference Photographs for Steel Surfaces Prepared by Wet Abrasive Blast Cleaning. Pictorial Standard also shows two uncoated, rusted steel surfaces (Conditions C and D) before and after wet abrasive blast cleaning. Photographs illustrate both two degrees of cleaning (WAB 6 and WAB 10). For each initial condition, with additional photos that depict the appearance of light, moderate, and heavy flash rust after cleaning. Also contains a written guide to the use of reference photographs and additional explanatory notes. Surface preparation specifications for commercial (SP 6/NACE 3) and near-white blast cleaning (SP 10/NACE 2). Photos of commercial and near-white surfaces achieved by dry abrasive blast cleaning can be found in SSPC-VIS 1.
