Automotive Strippable Coating

Temporary protective automotive peelable masks are made for protecting automobiles and are designed to combat the hazards that a vehicle faces on today’s highways. Rock chips, insects, bad weather, and salted roadways are just some of the things that can damage the beautiful factory finish of a vehicle and diminish its value. These coatings dry to form a contour-hugging, skin-tight protective film, protecting substrates during fabrication, assembly and shipment. We’ve also developed paint spray booth peelable coatings for application to walls and floors of automotive paint spray booths and surrounding areas.  These coatings can quickly be peeled from any surface, even when heavily laden with overspray. They are also used for long term preservation for the external storage of vehicles and equipment saving the use of internal storage space and also when they are loaded on deck, protected from the corrosive elements during the long sea voyage. 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.

  • Once cured, it provides an extremely tough, uniform film.
  • Easily removed. Peels off in sheets which eliminates messy hand scrapping.
  • Safe, 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.
