Our chemical stripping services involve the removal of
paint finishes and other coatings from a surface using chemicals
Chemical stripping is designed to remove all
traces of a coating, exposing the substrate underneath. It works
by penetrating and softening the existing coating causing it to swell
resulting in the layer of coating to separate from the substrate.
At PCS we have the ability to remove paint from a variety
of metal substrates including mild steel, wrought iron, stainless steel,
sheetmetal and small aluminium parts.
This form of paint and/or coating removal is particularly
impressive when you need to remove finishes from
difficult to get to areas and often forms part of the restoration
process for cabinets, garden furniture and intricate auto
parts for cars and motorcycles without harming or
distressing the structure. All metal surfaces need to be free of
protective oils or lubricants before being powder coated and
chemical stripping can help in this preparation process.
Many of our clients use our chemical stripping services to assist in the
surface preparation for metal fabrication as well reject parts.
Metal cleaning is exceedingly complex. Asking a specialist
like PCS to assist with your chemical stripping requirements removes the
need for hazardous chemicals in your workplace and the worry of what to do
with the waste and water run-off from any paint removal
Importantly, PCS is environmentally minded and follow all Australian
standards and regulations with regard to the chemicals they use.
