Spot repair is a familiar term for most pre-treatment work within surface preparation.
Spot repair involves removing damaged or deteriorated parts of paint. And associated pollution, followed by replacement with a new paint coating. This helps to extend the life of the paint coating with minimal maintenance.
Spot repair maintenance on coatings is a constant process. It is necessary to ensure the coating system performs optimally and protects the underlying asset substrate.
The alternative is a complete renewal of a coating system that has deteriorated beyond practical spot repair due to a lack of maintenance. So, of course, the option to perform regular spot repair is a smart one.
What type of tools you use for the pre-treatment makes a huge difference. Conventional tools, for example, might hurt more than they heal.

The size of spot repair areas can be vastly different and are often spread over larger areas. When discussing spot repair, we divide them into 5×5 cm areas to give our tools an estimated lifetime and reasonable estimates for different uses.
Cold work – mechanical pre-treatment tool
Ex-certified cold work surface preparation tools from Safety Tools Allmet will give a good clean surface with a profile meeting the SSPC-SP11 Surface Preparation Standard requirements.
SSPC-SP11 Surface Preparation Standard is suitable where a roughened, clean, bare metal surface free of all visible oil, grease, dirt, rust, coating, oxides, mill scale, corrosion products, and other foreign matter is required but where abrasive blasting is not feasible or permissible.
