Galvanizing Repair

One of the hardest features of performing on-site galvanizing repair is managing to achieve the optimum surface preparation. Other mechanical media can sometimes result in contamination of the surface from silicas and like foreign matter. It can often be difficult, with more aggressive media, to control the removal of the galvanized coating and in turn leave the essential layer of zinc.

The key to a good and long lasting galvanising repair is complete removal of corrosion and consistent surface roughness for good adhesion of cold-gal coating.

The Bristle Blaster® achieves a superior degree of cleanliness, with an anchor profile, providing an optimum surface for “cold-gal” repairs. The level of removal of galvanizing can easily be controlled, ensuring that the protective zinc layer remains. “Feathering” edges and existing galvanizing is easily achieved, allowing for overlay of new coating and better longer term performance of repairs. The Bristle Blaster® is also perfectly suited for the creation of friction joints between two galvanized surfaces.

The MBX® is perfectly suited to St2 and St3 preparation. The variety of MBX Belts from fine, through medium, to coarse, allow varied surface roughness to be achieved.

In Memoriam

Detlef Thomas 1956 – 2018

The MONTI family is deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing away of our Co-Founder and Director Detlef Thomas. Detlef died of natural causes at his home in Dattenberg, Germany last week. He was 62 years old.

Detlef was with MONTI from its earliest beginnings and was one of the primary architects of its success. For more than 30 years he led the company’s global expansion and growth in the automobile and industrial surface preparation industries.

Detlef was a remarkably authentic, larger-than-life personality who brought his creativity, energy and inexhaustible drive to the power tool industry. He will be deeply missed by his colleagues, friends and the legions of MONTI partners and fans around the world that he touched.

Detlef is survived by his wife Zoe. His family asks for their privacy to be respected at this difficult time.
