The TQC Bresle Patch is used to test for surface contaminants, such as salt, which may cause major problems and increase maintenance costs for shipping, vessels, ballast tanks, oil and gas piping, industry buildings and steel structures in general. Coating failure such as blistering and corrosion may be the result of a too high level of salt prior to painting. The Bresle Method described in the ISO 8502-6 is commonly used to measure the level of surface salts prior to coating. A so-called bresle patch (a small self-adhesive plastic patch) with a washed latex membrane and a known surface area is used to dissolve the soluble salts.
