SELECTIVE PAINT REMOVAL

Stripping layer by layer with cleanLASER

Usually lasers remove all layers up to the base material. When removing selected areas laser pulses have to be directed and controlled exactly. In doing so, the amount of pulses per spot is decisive. With each pulse a thin layer is removed. The cleanLASER can remove selected layer by layer.

  • cleanLASER intelligent process monitoring & control can remove coating layers to the precise degree required – no more/no less – when treating layers of uniform thicknesses
  • Top coats can be laser removed to expose base material primers. Process provides excellent re-coating properties confirmed by US Air Force testing & according to international aviation standard SAE 4812
  • Uses no media, no dust, no chemicals, no clean-up, residue-free de-coating
  • Green technology – no polution 
  • Fast setup, simple to operate
  • Handheld laser optics - versatile & ergonomically designed
  • Easy to automate, robotic optics avaialble 
  • Beam delivery by flexible fiber optic cable up to 150 feet long
  • Space-saving compact portable & stationary systems
  • Environmentally friendly – no seconday waste
  • Low operating cost
  • Minimal maintenace
  • Proved successful, used in aerospace, automotive & industrial applications worldwide

Applications

  • Aerospace: Paint-removal while maintaining primer
  • Automobile industry: selected top coat removal for bonding preparation while maintaining corrosion resistance of the primer (e.g. bonding of windscreens)
  • Corrosion resistance and maintenance: Weathered top coatings are removed thoroughly before new paint finish
