Chemical Stripping

Chemical stripping normally involves the submersion of the substrate in a tank often referred to as a chemical tank and is generally undertaken by one of two methods:

1. COLD STRIP – The most widely used method via a Methylene Chloride process. It’s very aggressive and is able to remove most surface coatings.

2. HOT STRIP – Requires the tank to be heated to 60-85c and some require agitation, often a longer process than cold strip the benefit of using products such as Alcohol Benzyl is that once the coating is removed, the process stops.

We prefer to use less aggressive Benzyl Alcohol (hot) chemical stripper which acts by dissolving the applied coating and holding it in particulate suspension within the chemical processing tank. This particulate build up is fed through filter presses which remove the powder and thus continually refine the chemical.
