Revision Date: November 01, 1987
Updated On: April 01, 2002
Editorial Change: November 1, 2004
This specification covers the requirements for power tool cleaning to produce a bare metal surface and to retain or produce a surface profile.

This specification is suitable where a roughened, clean, bare metal surface is required, but where abrasive blasting is not feasible or permissible.

This specification differs from SSPC-SP 3, Power Tool Cleaning, in that SSPC-SP 3 requires only the removal of loosely adherent materials and does not require producing or retaining a surface profile.
