The Bresle Kit – Sodium Chloride Test Kit complies with the ISO 8502-6 and ISO 8502-9 standards that describe the Bresle Method to assess the level of soluble salts using a Bresle patch or Bresle sampler, distilled water and a conductivity gauge. The conductivity is mainly directly proportional to the concentration of dissolved chloride ions in the solution. The kit includes all the necessary equipment to execute a bresle test that will indicate the contamination of soluble salts on blast-cleaned surfaces prior to coating. Inside the Bresle Kit – Sodium Chloride Test Kit is a conductivity gauge used for the assessment of soluble salt ions as chlorides, sulphates and nitrates.
Contamination of blast-media
The Bresle Kit – Sodium Chloride Test Kit is also suitable to determine the contamination of blast-media in use. This important test described in the ISO 11127-6 and ISO 11127-7 standards helps to prevent that the dissolved salts in the recycled abrasive media or water will not re-contaminate the surface being cleaned.
Bresle Patches Description
The TQC Sheen Bresle patch conform ISO 8502-6 is a round self-adhesive plastic patch with a medical grade membrane and a known surface area. Due to the round shape it is stronger, whilst at the same time the patch has a clean removal, negligible patch contamination, no breaking foam and is silicon free. Each patch is certified and traceable. This unique Bresle patch is tested by global coating industry leaders.
Bresle patches are used to test for surface contaminants, such as salts. The patch is described in ISO 8502-6 and -9, also known as the Bresle Method. This Bresle method is commonly used to measure the level of surface salts prior to coating.
Prevent maintenance costs
A too high level of salts may cause coating failures like blistering and corrosion. This might cause major problems and increase maintenance costs for shipping, vessels, ballast tanks, oil and gas piping, industry buildings and steel structures in general. That’s why measuring the level of salts prior to coating is essential
