New Test Methods for Determination of the Soluble Salt Contamination of a Blast Cleaned Steel Surface Using the Saturated Filter Paper Sampling Method

1. Scope

2.1 The scope of the Committee shall be the development of test methods, definitions, practices, specifications, classifications, guides, and related knowledge for:
(1) paint, varnish, lacquer, printing ink and other related coatings and materials in liquid, liquefiable, powder, or mastic form,
(2) components therof,
(3) preparation of surfaces to which such coatings are applied
(4) coating-substrate systems, and
(5) paint application tools.


salt contamination; chloride testing; steel surface cleanliness


This standard is needed because there is no existing standard using this method to determine soluble salts on blast cleaned steel surfaces.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
