D-Zolve CARC Remover from Solvent Kleene was specifically developed to strip Mil-Spec chemical agent resistant coatings (CARCs) required on all combat equipment and combat support equipment.
According to the company, CARCs are formulated to resist penetration and damage by the harsh chemicals used to decontaminate equipment returning from combat operations. As a result, these highly resistant coatings also resist penetration by many paint and coating strippers.
D-Zolve CARC Remover is formulated to break through a highly chemical-resistant CARC coating, separate the coating from the substrate and remove it in one step. Because it completely removes CARCs, it eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming additional processes such as sand or shot blasting, and high-temperature methods, the company says. The stripper will not damage intricate surface details or polished surfaces.
Designed for energy-efficient use at low temperatures, the coatings stripper typically performs by immersion, although a brush-on application is also available. It is environmentally friendly and non-flammable, has a very low order of toxicity, and does not contain any ozone-depleting components or carcinogenic compounds.
D-Zolve CARC Remover can be used to safely remove paints and coatings from ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steels and carbon steels, as well as plastic and silicon substrates.
