Detecting salt contamination on a surface to be painted

Bresle path method:

This method determines the concentration of soluble salts on metal surfaces before applying paint or other coating. Our best-selling salt contamination kits perform this task with ease and remarkable precision. We offer a few different conductivity measuring kits, including our latest digital Elcometer 130 Salt Contamination Meter, that works using the Bresle path method. Salt constitutes such as sulfates, nitrates and chlorides add to the conductivity of the solution.

We also offer Elcometer 139 Amine Blush Chip Screen Test Kit and Elcometer 139 Amine Blush Swab Test Kit for field tests for uncured Amines. Elcometer amine blush check is a reliable way to detect surface contamination.

With these tools, you can perform quick colorimetric tests designed to perform rapid analysis of amine blush (carbamates) on a given coating surface. These are the first Amine Bush kits on the market that eliminate false-positive results caused by PH levels.

The Elcometer 142 Dust Tape Test kit analyses dust particles on surfaces prior to painting (their quantity and size). The accompanying Elcometer 145 Dust Tape Roller presses the Dust Tape to the surface using measured constant force according to BS EN ISO 8502-3 (BS 7079-B3:199).
