This work reports that abrasive blasting of a structural steel results in significant retention of garnet abrasive residues. A comparative study of the adsorption behavior of a number of organic species, relevant to paint components and additives, onto the surfaces of garnet and S355 steel from nonaqueous solutions is also presented. Areas per adsorbed molecule, estimated from the isotherm data, suggest a range of molecular orientations on the surfaces. Pronounced differences in the adsorption strength to the garnet and steel were observed, particularly that most additives bind more strongly to steel than to garnet. Surface characterization data from acid-base titrations, photoelectron spectroscopy, and backscattered electron diffraction were used to rationalize the adsorption data obtained. The ramifications of these findings for particular industrial processes, with regards the strength of paint adhesion and paint additive formulations, are highlighted.
