This guide describes the use of reference photographs depicting the appearance of both previously unpainted and previously painted and partially rusted hot-rolled carbon steel prior to and after abrasive blast cleaning.
The reference photographs consist of a series of 1:1 (actual size) color photographs. The photographs were taken under controlled studio lighting designed to show the maximum detail possible.
Highlighted in the guide are five initial rust conditions before surface preparation, covering the rand from intact mill scale to rusted and pitted steel, as well as previously painted steel.

In this multi-author book, Coatings Failures: Case Studies in Analysis and Solutions-Infrastructure, coatings experts recall days in the field when they were faced with a problem, such as premature coating failures, determined a cause, and developed a solution.
The six chapters include case studies on topics such as how alkyd paints should never be used on steel that is intended for immersion service; how important it is to remember buildings such as coal-fired power plants have many different types of piping, structures, and other areas that operate at different temperatures, with many different functions; how when evaluating peeling paint on structures such as pedestrian bridges, it is always a good idea to do some adhesion testing in areas that appear to be non-failing; and more.
