Paintblast D103 is a complete paint removal system for aircraft components.
The complete removal of modern chemically resistant paint finishes from aircraft components without damage to both the substrate and existing pre treatment process is presenting an ever increasing problem.
The Paintblast system is designed to overcome this problem by combining the chemical action of specially formulated ambient temperature stripping solutions with that of mechanical impingement using a specialised range of blast equipment incorporating Paintblast D103 as an effective but safe media. This system has been developed by Dasic International Ltd., in conjunction with British Aerospace and has been widely accepted and adopted by aircraft and component manufacturers and operators.
The use of very high tensile steels in the construction of hydraulic landing gear, for example, limits the exposure of such components in paint stripping solution due to possible embrittlement and is often found necessary to utilise a heated stripping solution to obtain reasonable results. Further heat treatment is then required to ensure de embrittlement. Finally, any cadmium plated parts have to be replated. The Dasic Paintblast system eliminates this long and costly processing procedure.
Further examples of paint removal utilising the Dasic Paintblast system are as follows:
The removal of high baked epoxy coatings from close tolerance aluminium and magnesium components without damage to the substrate.
The localised removal of protective finishes from airframe sections (anodised sections of wing areas, rivet heads, etc).
The removal of finishes from composite (glass or carbon fibre) components without removing the vital fibre bonding gel coatings, using D143 as the initial chemical stage. D143 is safe for use on composite materials and is approved to Def Stan 1443.
