cleaning or when performed inside factory buildings.
All blast cleaned surfaces shall be coated within four hours from their blast
cleaning.
Blast cleaning shall be extended for a distance of 2.5 cm on the nearby surfaces
already coated. Acids, detergents in solution, or solvents may not be used to
wash the blast cleaned surfaces. This also applies to rust inhibitors.
No blast cleaning shall be carried out on wet or damp surfaces nor on surfaces
that may become damp before the coating is applied.

- dust level check: shall be performed in accordance to ISO 8502-3 Std., the
number of checks to be established by agreement with the Company,
depending on the surface and homogeneousness of the component
examined; acceptance level per class 1.
- surface roughness test: shall be performed according to ISO 8503-1 and

- visual check: the coated surface shall be 100% inspected visually; for
acceptance it is required that no paint runs, foreign bodies, orange peel,
oxidized or deteriorated areas are present.
2.6.5 Warranties and final acceptance
Final acceptance of the coating is given upon satisfactory result of a visual
check that will take place one year after completion of the coating. The
Supplier shall give joint warranty with the Contractor to this purpose.
The acceptance criterion is the absence of traces of corrosion or of deterioration
of the coated component, that can be attributed to defects in the coating or to a
defective application of it. Any exfoliation, whatever small, is equivalent to a
deterioration.
