Industrial Powder coating produces an incredibly durable finish which can be difficult and costly to remove when a part needs re-coating. Several stripping methods are used to remove powder coatings from parts.
Plastic Media Blasting Applications
Plastic media blasting was first used for stripping aircraft components but today the media blasting industry has found a wide variety of uses for plastic media blasting. Pot metal castings and the intricate cast-in artwork on them also are a good example. Plastic media blasting is perfect for cast-aluminum patio furniture which requires stipping before powder coating.The original coating is resistant to chemical stripper, and the hours of hand cleaning required would be expensive. A more abrasive media such as sand or glass would leave marks on the surface as well as destroy any details in the casting. With plastic media blasting, the old coating is quickly removed and the casting detail is effectively cleaned without leaving marks on the surface.
