Comment | More

Choosing the right power tools and using them effectively for spot cleaning, corrosion removal and more will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.

"Steps to More Effective Power Tool Cleaning," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET Nov. 6 (5 to 6 p.m. CET), will explain power tool cleaning and how to effectively remove corrosion, mill scale and coatings.

The presentation will describe a variety of power tools, both electric and pneumatic. The discussion will include how these tools are frequently used for spot cleaning of damaged coatings where contamination of adjacent areas by abrasive blasting is unacceptable and when a surface-tolerant coating is used.

The use of high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum lines to reduce air pollution in the cleaning operation will also be addressed.
