This standard describes a procedure suitable for laboratory and field use to determine conformance to specified surface profile on concrete substrates using Method 1: Depth micrometer as described in ASTM D8271, Method 2: Concrete Surface Profile (CSP) Chips (CSP 1-10) as described in ICRI Guideline No. 310.2R, or Method 3: Replica putty as described in ASTM D7682 (Method 3A-visual or Method 3B-quantitative).
Proper bonding of coatings and linings to concrete surfaces requires proper cleaning and frequently requires the concrete to be roughened to increase the surface area. The roughness, also known as surface profile, can be imparted into concrete by abrasive or water blast cleaning, acid etching or various impact/scarifying power tools. The resulting surface profile depth can influence coating/lining adhesion and performance. Coating/lining manufacturers and/or facility owners frequently specify cleaning and roughening of the concrete surface prior to product installation.
This standard is intended for use by coating or lining specifiers, applicators, inspectors, or others who require the use of pressurized water cleaning technology to achieve a defined level of visual cleanliness of concrete surfaces. This standard contains requirements for Thorough Cleaning. Requirements for Light Cleaning are addressed in a separate standard.
This AMPP standard practice presents the requirements for electrochemical chloride extraction and electrochemical realkalization of reinforcing steel in atmospherically exposed concrete structures.The standard provides the designengineer and contractor with the requirements for control of corrosion of conventional reinforcing steel in Portland cement concrete structures through the application of chloride extraction or realkalization.This standard is intended foruse by owners, engineers, architects, contractors, and all those concerned with rehabilitation of corrosion-damagedreinforced concrete structures.
