SSPC-SP 3 Power Tool Cleaning

SSPC-SP 3 Power Tool Cleaning

Removes all loose mill scale, loose rust, loose paint, and other loose detrimental foreign matter by power wire brushing, power sanding, power grinding, power tool chipping, and power tool descaling. 

Prior to the use of power tools, remove visible oil and/or grease by power or hand washing. A surface prepared with power tools requires that all loose mill scale, loose rust, loose paint and other loose foreign material be removed. It is not intended to remove adherent mill scale, rust and paint or to produce a surface profile. Material is considered to be adherent if they can not be removed by lifting with a dull putty knife.

Types of power tools used are generally impact or rotary power tools, to which any of the following types of media can be attached: non-woven abrasive wheels and discs, coated abrasive discs, flap wheels, needle guns or other devices. 3M Scotch-Brite Surface Conditioning Products line can provide this type of abrasive media to be mounted onto power tools.
