Paint Stripping

Surface Processing has developed a wide range of reliable, laboratory-supported, paint stripping processes which can be tailored to suit the individual needs of each customer.

Range of Processes available:

Chemical Immersion
(Alkaline, Acid and pH neutral systems)

Thermal Pyrolysis
A controlled low-oxygen thermal cleaning process

Media Blasting
A wide range of media alternatives

Our unique chemical cleaning processes can successfully remove paint and contamination from high tolerance machined surfaces without fear of damage or distortion.

  • powder coat jigs and masking
  • Floor Grids and skids for high and low volume paint lines
  • E-Coat Jigs and fixtures
  • Phosphate pipe and nozzle cleaning
  • Tanks and vessels
  • Heat exchange systems
  • Pipework and fittings
  • Ferrous and Ferrious components and assemblies

We offer a high quality, responsive and reliable service for the removal of unwanted paint and other contaminants from the very smallest of components all the way up to items in excess of 5 tonnes.

  • Plastic /polymer components
  • Hi integrity componenents for aerospace and defence
  • Safety critical components
  • Multi- metal components
  • Castings and forgings
  • Architectural components
  • Casting and forgings
  • Architectural gates, railings and hand rails
  • Machine tools
  • Bakeware for industrial kitchens

Our processes will remove a broad range of coatings including but not limited to:

  • Epoxy and polyester powder coatings
  • Electrophoretic coatings
  • "single pack" and "two pack" spray paint systems
  • Epoxy,polyurethane,alkyd,acrylic,oil based paints
  • Fluoropolymer coatings including Teflon and other co-polymer coatings
  • Water based high solids
  • Fusion bonded coatings
  • Automotive paints
  • Chemical Attack Resistant Coatings (CARC)
  • Galvanize and other Zinc coatings
  • Cadmium, Nickel and many other electroplated coatings
  • Carbon contamination
  • Oil and Grease Contamination

We can remove many of these coatings from items constructed from the following underlying substrate materials

  • Mild Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminium
  • Magnesium
  • Bronze
  • Brass
  • Plastics/Polymers including ABS, Nylon, Polypropylene & Polycarbonates
