Processes Address Ecoat Paint Removal and Pretreatment
At Ecoat18, Atotech will highlight Master Remover 2000S and UniPrep ACD 105, two products designed to solve some of the most difficult obstacles faced by ecoat applicators.
Atotech will highlight two products designed to solve some of the most difficult obstacles faced by ecoat applicators: Master Remover 2000S for paint removal in ecoat rack cleaning and UniPrep ACD 105 for weld and laser scale removal.
According to the company, removing paint from racks and fixtures is essential in minimizing costly defects and rework for ecoat applicators. As paint builds up over time, the coating efficiency of racked parts declines, resulting in poor paint coverage and ultimately corrosion failure. Master Remover 2000S efficiently removes cathodic epoxy ecoat paint from racks and fixtures for both in-line and off-line systems.
As highlighted in Products Finishing’s February cover story on GE Transportation, UniPrep ACD 105 is a near-neutral pH weld and laser scale removal process developed to meet stringent environmental regulations, offering ecoat applicators superior paint coverage on weld and laser cut areas, eliminating the need for mechanical scale removal, and improving employee safety and finished-part quality.
