The Surface Preparation is the essential first stage treatment of a steel substrate before the application of any coating, and it is generally accepted as being the most important factor generating the total success of the corrosion protection system.
The performance of a coating is significantly influenced by its ability to adhere properly to the substrate material. The residual millscale on steel surfaces is an unsatisfactory base to apply nowadays, it is replaced by high performance protective coatings and it is therefore removed by abrasive blast cleaning. Other surface contaminants on the rolled steel surface, such as oil and grease, are also undesirable and they must be removed before the blast cleaning process.
The Surface Preparation process not only cleans the steel, but it also introduces a suitable profile so that it can receive the protective coating.
