Testing of paint removers APS
Imagine, that the paint is a lock, then the paint remover is the key! And You should find the proper key. We produce more than 20 different compositions, because there are a lot of types of paint coatings and surfaces to be cleaned. Our main goal is to find the optimal composition that will most effectively and quickly cope with the removal of paint from your product. It should be easily applied, effectively work, be compatible with the surface of the product, do not destroy it and do not lead to corrosion, and it should be nice to work with.
When choosing a paint remover, we recommend that you first pay attention to the maximum action of paint remover to the paint (so that in one application the paint is completely removed). This assumes that paint remover does not require additional application, reduced operating time.
It is equally important to choose the right composition according to the method of work. If the item can be immersed into a closed (preferably!) container, then it is better to use dipping method. If you plan to apply the paint remover with a brush or with an airless sprayer machine, then each of these methods has its own types of paint removers depending on viscosity. When working with flushes should also take into account the types of surfaces from which you plan to remove the paint.
Samples can be ordered to test different paint removers. Prepare a small area of the surface to be tested. Clean the surface from strong dirt or exfoliated paint with water, solvent or brush. Shake the sample bottles thoroughly. Apply different types of flushes in BULK, simulating the perfect application. When testing a paint remover, do not use brushes or smudge the paint remover. Maintain a distance between different paint removers not less than 10-15 centimeters. When testing, wait for the paint remover to fully work. The application time depends on various factors, such as: paint type, ambient and surface temperatures, etc. It is better to perform testing at a temperature of 20°C. At sub-zero temperatures or temperatures close to 0°C, action of paint removers may be slower, and some of them will not work at all. In the warm period, especially when the surface is heated, the active components of the paint removers will evaporate more strongly. In this case, it is recommended to cool the surface with cold water. Many of our compositions can be applied on wet surfaces. In the case of multi-layer coatings and poor interlayer adhesion, paint removers can very quickly "lift" the top layer and not penetrate to the bottom layers. In this case, you should re-apply the paint remover by removing the exfoliated top layer, or select a more "slow" paint remover, for example, APS-Eco (action time up to several hours). Detailed characteristics of the paint removers are described in the section PRODUCTS. If the samples don't work, give us a call and we will send the samples with other compositions.
