Paint stripping

Your metal can be stripped on our site where we have installed a brand-new paint stripping facility, investing £140K in the latest equipment (Nov 2020). Expensive stocks of material can be refurbished or completely rebranded as the base metal is restored close to its original condition. More details on our Data Sheet.  

Three-stage paint removal process

  • The process is chemical, not thermal, therefore there is no heat distortion of the metal, simply a clean finish ready for re-painting.
  • We can remove paint, polyester powder coating, conversion coatings and anodising.
  • The stripping tanks contain alkali-accelerated solvent-based immersion fluid free from hydrocarbons, phenols and cresols and the plant dimensions are the same as those in our powder coating plant so if we can powder coat your components we can also paint strip them.  
  • Our customers will benefit from faster paint stripping with just three stages and no heat involved. 
  • Old paint can be removed and material re-coated in a different colour.
  • Any coating rejected at final inspection can be easily removed before reprocessing the material to the original specification, thereby improving customer service.

Paint stripping
  • In most cases chemical stripping will remove all of the paint.
  • Old, thick and ingrained paint can be softened by chemical stripping before completing the removal with a blasting process.
  • We use non-ferrous aluminium oxide bead blasting for aluminium and ferrous grit blasting (for steel) causing no damage to the underlying metal.  
  • See our shot blasting page.
