This document specifies requirements for fused aluminium oxide abrasives, as supplied for blast-cleaning processes. It specifies ranges of particle sizes and values for apparent density, bulk density, Mohs hardness, moisture content, conductivity of aqueous extract and water-soluble chlorides.
The requirements specified in this document apply to abrasives supplied in the "new" condition only. They do not apply to abrasives either during or after use.
Test methods for non-metallic blast-cleaning abrasives are given in the various parts of ISO 11127.
NOTE 1 Information on commonly referenced national and international standards is given in Bibliography.
NOTE 2 Although this document has been developed specifically to meet requirements for preparation of steelwork, the properties specified will generally be appropriate for use when preparing other material surfaces, or components, using blast-cleaning techniques. These techniques are described in ISO 8504‑2.
