Abrasives can be tested for Chloride Ions (salt) to ensure your abrasive is not causing any potential problems.

Many coatings have failed because of chlorides deposited on a surface by contaminated abrasive. There is a test that can be easily conducted in the field in just a few minutes.

No sending samples to a laboratory - no waiting days for results - no high cost!
