World of steel
Rust is the biggest enemy of metals. Good surface preparation ensures the best possible bond between surface and coating.
Say no to dangerous and unhealthy blasting methods. Improper surface preparation stands as the leading cause of coating failure, contributing to a staggering 12%* of oil pollution in our seas. At MontiPower®, we believe in the principle of ‘prevention rather than cure’.
At the forefront of our values is a steadfast commitment to prioritize fair, safe, and healthy working conditions, while safeguarding the human rights of all individuals involved in our supply chain.
We care for…
Health and safety
We prioritize user-friendliness and safety in all of our equipment. Our tools are designed with ergonomic features and controls for sound, vibrations, and dust, all in compliance with local safety regulations. We believe in personal safety, which is why our power tools are considered safer than conventional grit blasting methods.
Our equipment has a low risk of injury to the operator due to the absence of high-pressure usage, and our belts won’t cut through safety boots or ropes. Our products also have low noise and vibration levels and are easy to operate, allowing for the use of PPE such as safety glasses.

To reach a future-proof state, the power tool industry must adhere to certain conditions for growth. MontiPower® and other power tool providers must ensure quality and safety throughout the supply chain, while also optimizing material management and handling waste in compliance with regulations. Shifting towards circular business models will minimize waste streams and promote sustainability.
Industry standards should promote innovation and the adoption of new technologies, such as those offered by MontiPower®, to improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact. Finally, the industry should embrace low-carbon technologies to align with global climate goals, such as the 1.5-degree Paris Agreement.
MontiPower® is a pioneer in developing closed cycle solutions. But what does this actually mean? In simple terms, it refers to a production process that leaves no loose ends. At MontiPower®, we are dedicated to developing surface preparation solutions that deliver unparalleled cleanliness and profile prior to coating application, all while minimizing waste and residue.
This philosophy is not just limited to our operations and work site, but also extends to the manufacturing of our brushes. Our abrasive brushes are produced in closed cycle work cells, where every step is meticulously controlled to ensure the highest standards of quality. Each belt is individually checked at every stage of the production process, leaving no room for error.
* When a pipe corrodes, it’s prone to substance leaks. This reaction can persist unless preventive measures are taken. To prevent pipeline incidents, construction professionals must develop sustainable monitoring and maintenance solutions. Luckily, there are methods to reduce pipeline corrosion that you can apply. There are two types of pipe corrosion: internal (causing approximately 12% of leakage and connection damage incidents) and external (accounting for about 8% of pipe breakage incidents).
