26 NOVEMBER 2015 COATINGSPROMAG.COM to a bid on a project related to this update. • International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) Guide No. 310.2: Selecting and Specifying Concrete Surface Preparation for Sealers, Coatings, Polymer Overlays, and Concrete Repair. This guide employs 10 rubber panels designating varying surface preparation examples that can be used for visual inspection of a prepared surface. The 10 concrete surface profile (CSP) panels may be used in conjunction with ASTM D7682 (see the next item). • ASTM D7682: Standard Test Method for Replication and Measurement of Concrete Surface Profiles Using Replica Putty. This standard employs Method A (aka visual comparison) and Method B (aka a quantifiable means of deter- mining the range of peak to valley) for anchor profile of prepared concrete substrates. Because you can retain the cured polymer discs after the job is completed, these then also act as a savable means of showing the concrete profile prior to coating application. In other words, they can also act as post-job support if necessary. • ASTM D3276: Standard Guide for Painting Inspectors (Metal Substrates). This guide is intended as an information aid to painting inspectors in carrying out their task efficiently. It includes the key elements of surface preparation, coatings application, and final approval for both field and shop work. The items should be selected that are pertinent to the specifica- tion of a particular job. • SSPC AB 1–4: Mineral and Slag Abrasives, Cleanliness of Recycled Ferrous Metallic Abrasive, Ferrous Metallic Abrasive, and Recyclable Encapsulated Abrasive Material. These explain the testing of certain abrasives for size, turbidity, and amounts of contaminants, such as chlorides. Some standards, such as NACE No. 6/SSPC-SP-13: Surface Preparation of Concrete, are listed within a specifca- tion but possibly do not refer to a recent revision. NACE No. 6/SSPC-SP-13 is a joint NACE/SSPC standard (recently revised) that "gives requirements for surface preparation of concrete by mechanical, chemical, or thermal methods prior to the application of bonded protective coating or lining systems."
