Title: In-house Chemical Paint Removal – The Ideal Choice for Hook and Rack Cleaning


The removal of unwanted cured paint from part racks, hooks, and fixtures is often outsourced due to the hazards associated with conventional methods.  With the proven team-approach by Therma-Tron-X and Atotech USA, LLC, new process improving efficiencies can be gained by bringing paint removal in-house.


A necessary inconvenience of all paint applications is the eventual requirement to remove the cured paint from part racks, hooks, and fixtures. Ensuring proper contact between the part and its fixture is paramount in achieving a quality paint finish, and as cured paint builds up on fixtures, the area of contact becomes narrower and proper part racking becomes more difficult. The only way to continuously guarantee the highest paint transfer efficiency and minimize part defects is to remove the unwanted, cured paint. Traditionally, this paint removal is achieved by one of three methods: mechanical, thermal and chemical.  Due to the hazards of these conventional methods, paint applicators often outsource their paint removal demands; however, safe, economical, and sustainable in-house paint removal for ferrous, non-ferrous, and multi-metal applications can be achieved. With the pairing of reliable, durable, and efficient equipment from Therma-Tron-X, Inc to the innovative and sustainable chemical solutions from Atotech USA, LLC, these desirable process improvements can be realized by applicators today.
