Automotive Strippable Coating
Provides Protection Against:

  • Branch Scratches
  • Stone
  • Dirt & Dust
  • Bug Splatters
  • Bird, Bat, Bug Droppings
  • Tree Sap
  • UV Damage/Fading
  • Pollution
  • Grease & Grime

Main Advantages

  • 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 of heat lamps (120°F), circulation of air, and other factors.
  • Easily removed. Peels off in sheets which eliminates messy hand scrapping.
  • Safe, non-flammable.
  • Suitable for all substrates including polycarbonates, plastic, and painted surfaces.

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.

General Chemical’s Automotive strippable coatings dry to form a contour-hugging, skin-tight protective film, protecting substrates during fabrication, assembly and shipment. General Chemical’s tough, clear, peelable film coating is still the best method of preventing scratches and abrasions and strips cleanly away from the surface leaving no residue. It even acts as a masking against paint overspray.

Who hasn’t been bugged by the corrosive nature of insect fluids on car paint? If you’re not in love with “love bugs” and their creepy-crawly kin, you’re not alone. If you deplore the mess and believe there’s something in insect insides that damages paint by softening the finish, you may be ready to tackle it with our Peelable coatings combating something that truly bugs you!

Automotive Strippable Coating General Product Information

Application by roller might require a few coats. Mask is water based for safe use and easy water clean up. When applying Mask use the same protection as used while applying paint.

Drying Time:
It is critical that Peelable coating film is allowed to cure dry. Drying time will vary according to humidity, temperature and weather conditions. The evaporation of water can be sped up by air movement and warmth supplied by natural and mechanical means.

It is possible to get a 3 mil, tack free, dry coating film in less than one hour by air drying at ambient temperature. For maximum tensile strength, 12 hour drying time is best. By blowing air past the surface of the wet film, drying time can be shortened. Air heated up to 115ºF can also help shorten drying time. Mask cures upon water evaporation. Forced dry coatings can cure in less than 10 minutes. Most coatings without assist will dry in a few hours. It is imperative that Liquid Mask be thoroughly cured and dry before an attempt is made to peel the coating from the substrate. Cured coating is transparent throughout. Cured Mask is water  water and solvent resistant and acts as a mask against sprayed emulsion paints, lacquers, oil or grease and water, and can also be mopped with water.

General Chemical’s Peelable coatings are temporary protective coatings and adhesion is low.

The dry Peelable coatings film can be easily removed either by hand stripping or other means. Thick coating peels in one large continuous sheet. Thin coatings will break in areas of coating weakness.  Peelable coatings are thermoplastic. Do not try to remove in freezing conditions, as the coating will be brittle.

Clean Up:
General Chemical’s Peelable coating is a water-based product and you can clean spray equipment and brushes with water. Do this immediately before peelable coating starts to dry.

Automotive Paint Spray Booth Peelable Coatings

Developed for application to walls and floors of automotive paint spray booths and surrounding areas. The peelable masking film protects walls and floors of the spray booth area from paint overspray and maintains its integrity by not allowing solvent penetration. It can be quickly peeled from any surface, even when heavily laden with overspray.

General Chemical’s water based & solvent based fast drying Peelable / Paint spray booth strippable coatings are temporary protective strippable coatings for Spray booths, Paint Booths, industrial floors & various surfaces such as paint booths spray booths, glass, decal, storage parts wood and others to protect it temporarily during industrial process or in material handling.

Automotive Preservation & Storage System

Automotive peelable coatings are used for long term preservation for the external storage of vehicles and equipment, saving the use of internal storage space. It also works well when they are loaded on ship decks, protecting vehicles 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. General Chemical’s Peelable maskants are non-toxic, non-flammable, and the water borne, skin-tight film will not damage plastic or painted surfaces.

Clay Modeling Automotive Design

Stripcoat 4490AL is a solvent-based, Bright Silver, Peelable coating made for clay models and other substrate prototypes in engineering design so flaws can be found easier. 4490AL is the international standard for designing prototypes, such as cars during the designing and manufacturing processes.


One liter will cover approximately 4 square meters at a dry film thickness of 100 microns. You can also use the following chart to calculate mil thickness and gallon coverage.
