Dustless Blasting Powder Coating Paint Stripper in Ozark Missouri
Powder coating is a type of finishing process that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”.
The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the filler parts in a liquid suspension form. Powder coating is mainly used for coating metals, such as automotive parts, motorcycle parts, bicycle parts, and patio furniture.
It is a very durable coating. But one downside to this durability is when you need to refinish an item that has been powder coated. This process would normally include toxic chemicals or actually burning off the existing coating.
Dog Gone Blasting can remove this tough coating with ease using our dustless blasting system as a powder coating paint stripper in Ozark Missouri. It is a viable solution for the unique challenge that powder coat removal demands.
Most companies that perform traditional sandblasting don’t like to blast powder coats off, because it is so time consuming. Their process causes friction, which in turn generates heat. In most cases, the heat just melts and puddles the powder coating. This makes the powder coating pliable instead of disintegrating and makes it really difficult to remove.
Sometimes several layers of powder coat have been applied which can be as much as 20-30 mils thick. This is pretty much a worst case scenario to thoroughly remove without damaging the substrate.
With the dustless blasting system that Dog Gone Blasting uses, the water prevents friction and actually lowers the temperature of the blast surface by about 10 degrees, so instead of melting the coating, it simply removes it.
Occasionally pieces of really thin aluminum parts are powder coated. Typically thin metal suffers from warping when subjected to the friction and heat of traditional dry blasting. With our dustless blasting system, the powder coating is removed quickly without warping the metal.
