    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives guidance for the selection and application of the other parts of AS1627, which cover methods for the preparation and pretreatment of metal surfaces prior to the application of a protective coating.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard gives guidance on the selection of the appropriate methods for the preparation and pretreatment of metal surfaces prior to the application of a protective coating. The methods and the related Australian Standards are as follows:(a) Solvent and alkaline cleaning . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . AS 1627.1(b) Power tool cleaning . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

AS 1627.10The Standard also makes reference to AS 1627.9, which gives pictorial guidance on surface finishes of steel after various treatments. The AS 1627 series of Standards apply primarily to surfaces intended to be painted, powder coated, metal sprayed or hot dipped in molten metal. For requirements for surface preparation prior to the application of electroplated coatings refer to ASTM B 183, ASTM B 242, ASTM B 252, ASTM B 253 and ASTM B 254.NOTE: Before any of these surface preparation methods are applied to a metal surface, it is important that, where necessary, prior dressing be carried out to remove any gross defects present on the surface (see Clause 3.2).
