Cost effective because:
RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover has proven it will effectively lift all types of aviation coatings including polyurethane, enamel, epoxy and solvent based primers.
It is designed for use on all Boeing D6-17487 Metals including magnesium. Approved by Boeing in accordance with BAC 5725 (PSD 6-81)*
* The paint stripper has not been fully tested on polysulfides (for example, sealants) and does not meet bare alloy steel surface corrosion test; contact to bare alloy steel surfaces should be avoided (for example, landing gear).
RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover has been rigorously tested by an independent laboratory using tests specified by Boeing (D6-17487). Results are available upon request. RemovALL™ is not hydrogen embrittling ASTM F 519.
Use with a diaphragm or piston-type drum pump (5:1 or 10:1 preferred) or airless sprayer with Teflon seals. Use only airless equipment with chemical resistant components. Use with 25-65? fans and 0.017 to 0.020 tips. Other equipment: brushes, rollers, scraper, masking tape, plastic (polyethene) sheet, pressure washer, electric drill with mixer, empty pails for clean-up, running water, rags.
(a) MASKING: Cover / protect areas where stripping is not desired, including adjoining surfaces where over spray may travel. Do not allow stripper to contact acrylic or glass windows. Follow OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) or internal documentation for appropriate masking procedures.
(b) MIXING: Never shake RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover! Using a drill mixer, mix RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover until all product is uniform in colour and creamy consistency. (About 1 minute per gallon). Shaking will cause product to separate.
(c) EQUIPMENT: Remove all filters from the pump, sprayer and gun. Prime the pump and run stripper through the hose and gun until all previous water / solvent / paint residue has been cleaned out. The surface to be stripped should be generally clean but does not need to be completely free of dirt or oil.
Conduct a small test patch in an inconspicuous area to ensure product performance. This will indicate the time required for project completion, suitability of product for paint and substrate, and most effective removal method.
Spray apply with the equipment recommended above. Pouring is also effective. Brushing and rolling should be limited to small areas due to the inconsistent film builds produced. Apply the stripper thick enough so that you cannot see the colour of the paint through the stripper layer. Apply stripper in an even coat with no globs or heavy spots as these may cause the stripper to sag or slide off the aircraft. Once the stripper is applied DO NOT agitate it. This will adversely affect the performance of the stripper. As long as the stripper is visibly wet it is working.
When removing O.E.M. finishes of 2 to 3.5 mils. (50 to 87.5 microns), apply a minimum of 15 mils. (381 microns) of RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover. When removing multiple layers increase the applied mil. thickness by approximately 2 mils. (50 microns) per paint layer.
When removing multiple finishes, there may be poor adhesion between repaints, in these cases RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover may lift paint in layers. When this happens, remove the lifted coatings and re-apply RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover. Do not rinse with water between applications.
Do not allow the stripper to dry out. The stripper is designed to remain wet and effective over extended periods of time (up to 48 hours), but excessive sunshine, windy conditions or insufficient stripper thickness can cause early drying. If the stripper starts to dry, re-apply a light coating and allow extra time for completion.
Dwell time is typically 3 to 8 hours. The required time may vary depending on: types and/or brands of paints being removed, number of paint layers, thickness of the coatings, aircraft coating substrate and ambient temperature.
Coverage is approximately 40 to 90 sq.ft./US Gal. (1 to 2.2 sq.m./L). Note: 0.08 fl.oz. will provide one wet mil. to 1 sq.ft. of surface. 1 Gal. at 10 mils. will cover approximately 75 sq.ft. (1.8 sq.m./L).
Surface temperatures should be 65 to 95?F (18 to 35?C). The product performs effectively at lower temperatures - even at 39?F (4?C), but the dwell time increases.
Removal of lifted paint can be completed with a squeegee, brush, wet/dry vacuum system or by high pressure water wash. Rinse the aircraft starting at the keel and move upward. Hot pressurized water is ideal for removing any lightly adhered paint but any thorough water rinse is sufficient to fully remove the stripper.
If the stripper and paint waste will be collected undiluted (before the aircraft is rinsed) a minimum of 8 hours must elapse from the time the stripper is applied to the aircraft until the stripper and paint mixture is collected and put in a waste drum.
Paint and stripper residue containing peroxide placed in contact with metal or rust will generate oxygen gas and heat. Use only plastic drums or metal drums with plastic linings for waste collection.
Do not mix with other wastes including rags, aluminum tape, etc. Do not seal the waste drums for 48 hours after collecting the stripper and paint waste mixture. Collect and dispose of the solid paint waste in accordance with local governmental regulations.
Do not store RemovALL™ 1012 Aviation Grade Coating Remover, in direct sunlight. Protect product from freezing. Do not store product and paint residue in metallic containers. Remove pump barrel from stripper after spraying is finished. Clean fluid section of sprayer after use.
Proper safety procedures should be followed at all times while handling the product. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for important health / safety information before use.
