European rust grade book

According to ISO 8501-1:2007



This standard book (88 pages) assist with the visual evaluation of rust and purity levels of non-coated steel stuctures.  Also known as the "Swedish steel blasting grades" (Sa). 

The Rust Grade Book specifies a series of Rust Grades and Preparation Grades of blast-cleaned steel surfaces. The various Grades are defined by written descriptions together with photographs.
The Book identifies four levels (designated as Rust Grades) of mill scale and rust that are commonly found on surfaces of uncoated erected steel and steel held in stock. It also identifies certain degrees of visual cleanliness (designated as Preparation Grades) after surface preparation of uncoated steel surfaces and of steel surfaces after overall removal of any previous coating. This multilingual (German/English/French/Swedish) standard book assists with the visual evaluation of rust and purity levels of non-coated steel structures. It contains 29 high-quality colour photographs for estimating the rust levels and purity levels after cleaning manually or by machine (also by blasting).
