This is an interesting new idea from Power-TEC: to be used by professional vehicle refinishers and SMART repair operators, these ultra thin stainless steels shim masks (part number 92439), are used to protect surrounding paint while runs or imperfections are removed with either a razor blade or sanding block.
Manufactured from 304-grade stainless steel, the mask shapes are chemically etched thus ensuring no burring or sharp edges and a perfectly flat mask. The choice of four stencil shapes allows different shaped and sized runs or imperfections to be tackled. The masks are placed over the imperfection (ensure that paint is completely dry and cured) and held in place with masking tape. A new, sharp razor blade can be used to slice away the run or imperfection or a sanding block can be used wet or dry. Final feathering is achieved by placing a slightly larger stencil shape over the repaired area and finishing with P2000 paper. The repair is then machine polished and finished off.
The shim masks are robust and stored in the supplied sleeve for future use. A real time saver and available now from your Power-Tec stockist.
