Aerospace Strippable Coating

General Chemical’s Aerospace strippable coatings dry to form a contour-hugging, skin-tight protective film. Aerospace customers and others recognize the value of protecting substrates during fabrication, assembly and shipment. The tough coating clear film is the best method of preventing scratches and abrasions and acts as a maskant against paint overspray. It strips away from the surface leaving no residue.  The protective film provides long term protection and can be stripped away by hand.  Our peelable coatings can also be used for long term preservation for external storage of airplane parts and equipment (saving the use of internal storage space).  The coatings also provide corrosion protection during exposure when parts are loaded onto a ship deck during long sea voyages. Similar applications apply to any components that may be exposed to the elements for long periods of time that would be affected by U.V. degradation, acid rain or corrosion.

General Chemical Corp. offers an extensive line of environmentally friendly paint strippers for use on aircraft surfaces and parts. These thixotropic paint strippers are designed to cling to vertical surfaces thereby improving the paint removal process. Our paint removers are designed to remove aircraft exterior paint finishes and primers when inspecting and/or re-painting an aircraft.

Aerospace Strippable Coating Benefits & Advantages

Aerospace strippable coatings offer cost-effective protection during storage, transport and fitting. It is a tough, weather-resistant film that withstands hazards, scratching and paint overspray. It comes off of the substrate cleanly without leaving any residue.

  • Results in a reduction of labor costs
  • Once cured, it provides an extremely tough, uniform film.
  • Curing time can be cut considerably with the use heat lamps (100°F), circulation of air and other factors.
  • Non-flammable

Patch Test

Because it is difficult to determine the type and condition of the surface, perform a small patch test first.  It will determine the peelability of the coating on your particular surface, it will define the coverage and the approximate amount of time required for it to work and to remove off of surface.  We offer no implied or otherwise a warranty for our products.
