There are a number of ways of performing automotive paint stripping such as dipping into caustic soda or, conversely, using an acid bath to remove paint finishes. Although both approaches of automotive chemical paint stripping are widely used, they can have negative outcomes. For example, these aggressive chemical cleaners can, in many cases, leave residual fluids in place. Indeed, automotive chemical paint stripping can often leave behind noxious chemicals that are trapped in the frames of cars or become caught up in the joints or structure of a vehicle’s body.
To remove paint from van or car panels, it is much better to use an oven bake-off approach. You can find out more about the ovens we use to carry out such work in the ‘Industrial Ovens’ page of our website.
