This standard covers the requirements for power tool cleaning to provide a commercial grade power tool cleaned steel surface and to retain or produce a minimum 25 micrometers (1.0 mil) surface profile.

This standard differs from SSPC-SP 3, Power Tool Cleaning, in that a higher degree of surface cleanliness is required and a minimum surface profile of 25 micrometers (1.0 mil) will be retained or produced.

This standard differs from SSPC-SP 11, Power Tool Cleaning to Bare Metal, in that stains of rust, paint, or mill scale may remain on the surface.
