Solvent Kleene's D-Zolve Removes Epoxy Coatings
Solvent Kleene has developed a new application for D-Zolve 15-33R to dissolve two-part, hardened slip-proof epoxy coatings. This coating can be used on steel, concrete, aluminum and other surfaces. According to the company, typical applications include use by the military, hospitals, warehousing and marine industries.
It is said that when maintenance and repairs are required, stripping hardened epoxy can be a difficult operation. D-Zolve 15-33R is a liquid chemical product that is said to dissolve the binders in the epoxy and break the bond between it and the substrate, including any aggregate imbedded in the epoxy, which allows for easy removal with a spatula or similar means.
The company says that it is a viscous liquid which is nonhazardous and contains no chlorinated components or peroxides. It is said to be nonflammable, nonacidic, noncorrosive and has no reproductive issues or hazardous air pollutants.
Better adhesion, enhanced corrosion and blister resistance, and reduced coating-part interactions make pretreatment a must.
