Did you know that salt in your abrasive can contaminate your blasted surface and cause coating failure?
Abrasives can be tested for Chloride Ions (salt) to ensure your abrasive is not causing any potential problems.
Many coatings have failed because of chlorides deposited on a surface by contaminated abrasive. There is a test that can be easily conducted in the field in just a few minutes.
No sending samples to a laboratory - no waiting days for results - no high cost!
A Chlor*Test Abrasive Chloride Test Kit - Part Number IN E1134 2 (shown to the right) is the answer.
"Salt content" is measured in parts per million, so that even a 'high' salt content of 30 ppm will not be visible as salt grains in the abrasive.
