One of the most important steps, when we want to restore a vintage car we have just bought or the one we already have, is that to evaluate its "health condition". It does not only consist in establishing its beautiful appearance, but in its effective structural conditions, which are very often hidden by the covering paint. So we must verify that it is free from rust and not too marked by the time, in order to choose the right cleaning treatment. In the above mentioned article, were focused on the mainly car shell paint removal techniques which are hot air pyrolytyc, chemical with immersion, high pressure water and sanding.

In this article we will give you the necessary information as far as the hot air pyrolytic paint removal is concerned.

What Is The Hot Air Pyrolytic Paint Removal?

The Hot air pyrolytic paint removal is a treatment allowing the COMPLETE removal of the paint multiple coats on the shell, through thermal decomposition, technically called pyrolysis.

The Advantages Of The Air Pyrolytic Paint Removal

This method is without any doubt the most efficient and it allows to eliminate the car paint through a progressive and more efficient treatment in comparison to the traditional ones. Thanks to the sole heat, the surface paint coats turn into ash. All this happens without altering the car shell properties (Structure, flatness, dimensions etc.) and without affecting weld joints and threads on the car shell and/or its peculiar components.

This system is the only, which can guarantee a total cleaning result, by removing any paint, glue, sealant, sound deadening, rubber, plastics and any kind of contaminant; furthermore it can guarantee any residual elimination even in the internal cavities, in the undercuts and inside the car boxes.

The advantages of the pyrolytic paint removal are not the end of the story: this kind of treatment doesn't affect the environment and if you think about the results, which are to be considered far more than excellent, pyrolytic paint can really be defined as the best treatment among the above mentioned. This is obviously also of great advantage for our health.

How Is Hot Air Pyrolytic Paint Removal Process Made?

The insiders like us (link to the website), use different dimension ovens which can distribute the sole heat (total flame absence), useful for pyrolysis on all the surface to treat, even in the most hidden parts like joints and cambers.

And what happens after the paint removal?

After the pyrolytic paint removal, our technicians provide the car shell manual cleaning with the help of specific tools and also hoover up the car boxes interiors, before proceeding with the employment of an aqueous solution composed by demineralized water mixed with a rust inhibitor. In the 90% of cases we can notice car shells with considerable rust residuals which affected the "vital" parts of the car structure...but don't worry.....We are even able to eliminate those ones!

We developed a treatment which can remove every rust residual: the pickling.

This treatment allows us to put to evidence "where and how" the restoring will have to be made and in which lenghth, but we will write about that in a following article, because this topic needs some deepening.
