Industrial Depainters and Dissolvers
Solvent Kleene's environmentally preferred depainters and powder coating dissolvers are designed to depaint and remove powder coatings, electrocoatings, aircraft paints (such as cross linked polyurethane top coats with epoxy primer) and marine fiberglass paints. These products are used for depainting powder coated ferrous and non-ferrous metals, dissolving powder coated aluminum and powder coated zinc, dissolving powder coated aluminum zinc alloys and for removing paint from aluminum, zinc, magnesium and other non-ferrous metals. D-Zolve depainting and powder coating removing products can be used in an immersion tank or applied to a substrate using a brush or airless spray equipment. Powder coatings and E-coatings can be removed from aluminum, zinc, stainless steels, carbon steels, magnesium and fiberglass surfaces.
D-Zolve™ 319 is a newly developed chemistry for dissolving powder coating and some liquid paints. It is the result of Solvent Kleene’s continued effort to bring new and better solutions for powder coating removal to market. Performing at room temperature of 75°F / 23°C D-Zolve™ 319 features a high Kb value, as tested and governed by ASTM (American Standard for Testing Materials) D-1133. It’s low surface tension allows it to penetrate small orifices, blind holes, and remove coatings from parts having rough surfaces and complex geometries.
D-Zolve™ 319 eliminates the need for high energy burn off and the removal of tough ash which requires an additional cleaning step. It is a good replacement for methylene chloride and those strippers which require heating to 150°F / 65°C and higher.
D-Zolve™ 319 is used in an immersion tank with no heating. Agitation is highly recommended to enhance the removal process, metal parts with a rough surface may require a pressurized water rinse to clean out stubborn spots. Exhaust ventilation is also recommended.
D-Zolve™ 1012 is a chemically energized powder coating dissolver which, unlike most other powder coating removers, does not require heating. D-Zolve 1012 attacks and dissolves the coating binders that hold the powder together causing the particles to fall to the bottom of the immersion tank. To remove the sludge that accumulates at the bottom and prolong the productive life of the stripper, it is advisable to have a circulation system which has eductors for agitation as well as in-line filtration. D-Zolve 1012 works fast and removes most powder coatings from aluminum, zinc, copper, brass, steel, stainless steel, and some plastics, such as, HDPE and polypropylene. D-Zolve 1012 is a good replacement for chlorinated solvents, blasting, and burn off. It has no ozone depleting components or air polluting potential. It is ideal for room temperature stripping of powder coatings in restoring magnesium and aluminum alloy wheels.
D-Zolve™ 917 is a fast acting rust dissolver that can also be used as a depainter. Designed as a multi-purpose product for use in an immersion tank at low temperatures, D-Zolve 917 dissolves rust and removes paints and powder coatings by penetrating and breaking the bond between the surface layer and the underlying substrate. It eliminates the need for costly burnoff, blasting or heating to high temperature.
D-Zolve 917 is a fast acting chemical paint, varnish, powder coating, CARC paint, autophoretic/autodeposition and E-coating/electrocoating dissolver and remover designed to be used at low temperatures (140°F/60°C) in an immersion tank. It is able to quickly penetrate and break the bond between the coating's layers and the substrate, eliminating the need for costly, time consuming burnoff, blasting or heating of the solution to high temperatures. Developed as a green, eco-stripper and remover, D-Zolve 917 is non-flammable, non-toxic and does not contain any ozone depleting components, no methylene chloride components or carcinogenic compounds. It provides safe depainting from ferrous and non-ferrous metals including aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steels and carbon steels as well as plastic and silicon substrates. D-Zolve 917 provides a safe alternative to burn off paint stripping and sand blasting paint removal.
In powder coating operations, hooks and racks get most of the coating build-up. They need to be closely monitored and maintained to prevent an excessive build up which can impair the static electricity performance. An easy method to prevent such a build up is to immerse the hooks and racks in the same immersion tank used to salvage parts. Immersing the hooks and racks in D-Zolve 917 multi-purpose stripper heated to a low temperature of 135°F /57°C quickly removes several layers of buildup.
D-Zolve™ 1220 is a high viscosity paint and coating remover for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It is designed to be applied either with airless spray-on equipment or as a brush-on. This fast acting chemical depainter removes paint, varnish, aircraft paints, autophoretic / autodeposition chemical coatings, powder coatings, CARC paints and E-coatings from fiberglass, aluminum, steel, steel and other metals. D-Zolve 1220 is a quick acting, industrial grade replacement for chlorinated and other hazardous solvents. Application of D-Zolve 1220 replaces the need for burn-off or blasting systems.
D-Zolve 917 is a Military Spec chemical agent resistant coating (CARC) Remover, fast acting depainter and powder coating remover. Designed for use in an immersion tank at low temperatures, It removes paints and powder coatings by penetrating the cured layers and breaking the bond between the coating and the substrate. It eliminates the need for costly burn-off, blasting, or high heating methods.
D-Zolve™ removes powder coating buildup from silicone plugs and other standard or custom molded maskings extending the useful live of these devices and reducing replacement costs. Designed to safely remove powder coatings from a wide range of materials such as silicone and neoprene, D-Zolve efficiently removes several layers of buildup from self-threading to dual-flanged pull plugs. When used in an immersion tank, D-Zolve’s special properties lift layers of paint and break the chemical bond between the powder coating and the substrate. When this bond breaks, the paint layers pull away from the surface and fall to the bottom of the tank.
Safely strips paints and coatings from plastic substrates and optical lenses allowing a defective or damaged surface finish to be stripped. Rather than scrap a plastic component or optical lens in need of surface rework, D-Zolve 3251 strips paints and coatings from Polycarbonates, ABS, TPO, Nylon and other resins, rendering a clean surface for rework while maintaining the integrity of the part’s surface. Surface finishes can be stripped without the need for expensive equipment or processes. Developed for use in immersion tanks, the D-Zolve 3251 stripping solution provides an eco friendly, cost effective means for removing base coats and clear top coats. Unlike many other stripping products and processes that require expensive specialized equipment or consume large amounts of energy for heating, D-Zolve 3251 is designed to keep equipment investment and energy consumption to a minimum. D-Zolve 3251 contains no chlorinated components, no halogens or air pollutants and is non-carcinogenic and non-flammable. D-Zolve 3251 provides a safe alternative to burn off paint stripping and sand blasting paint removal.
