24-Sustainability report

2023 Sustainability REPORT.
We are proud to make here our latest Sustainability Report available as MontiPower is committed  to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles.
At MontiPower, we believe in preparing surfaces by our special designed spring steel wire brushes in such a way that the belts can be recycled, re-sharpened, re-used and the tools re-paired. So, 4 R’s of sustainability in the field, on the job. We also believe in better preparation. This means better cleanliness and profile meeting the needs of each specific paint, coating or adhesives for different substrates ranging from metal, steel, composites, brick, concrete, to teakwood. We offer more than 25 different kind of different brushes. From decal without damaging the surfaces by the Vinyl Zapper® to Subsea Bristle Blasting with a surface profile >50 micron.
Sustainability is a continuous journey, and we are glad that we can offer a fantastic foundation for paints, coatings and adhesives protecting steel assets for life.
We are proud about the progress we have made in 2023.
