Abrasive blasting is generally specified in accordance with standards established by the Steel Structures Painting Council.
Other surface preparation methods frequently used, and covered by the Steel Structures Painting Council Specification, are:
In the 1950s the Steel Structures Painting Council
(SSPC), when it responded to the surge in highrise building, recommended the application of red lead oxide primer to building steel as a temporary (six months, at most) protection from weather exposure during the erection of the primary structural columns and beams, Then as now, fundamental design practice required that steel structural members exposed to moisture in the final assembly receive a top coat of moisture-protective paint.
With one stroke of a bureaucrat's pen, the rules of the game were changed," says Simon Boocock, research director of the Steel Structures Painting Council (SSPC), Pittsburgh.

Besides having climbing abilities and practical experience with coating application and repairs, the inspector should have a thorough knowledge of the Steel Structures Painting Council
and/or National Association of Corrosion Engineers standards and recommendations, the paint manufacturer's recommendations, and the project specifications.

Utilizing proper containment procedures to prevent airborne particles from escaping into the community, the previous coating was removed down to the original primer, and in some cases down to the bare metal, using ADMAC's Jetpac[TM] ultra-high pressure wash at 35,000 psi supplemented with power tool equipment under the guidelines of the Steel Structures Painting Council
