Ardrox 2480

Heavy duty immersion paint remover

ARDROX 2480 is an acid activated paint remover containing chlorinated solvents. It is free from phenolic and cresylic materials. The product as supplied contains a wax seal to retard evaporation losses. ARDROX 2480 is intended for the removal of paints and organic coatings which are resistant to the more usual cold immersion processes. Examples of organic schemes, which are removed by ARDROX 2480, are: stoved acrylics and epoxies, fused powder type epoxies and nylon. It is also useful for removing multi-coat systems which occur on painting jigs. ARDROX 2480 is used for “in-line” paint stripping of jigs in automated paint spraying processes. The complete removal of overspray ensures the good contact required to give a perfect finish by electrostatic spraying.

Chemicals required

Method of use
ARDROX 2480 is used as a soak process at ambient temperature. For most paints, removal is usually very fast taking only a few minutes. Multi-coat systems on jigs, however, may require several hours. The loosened paint should be rinsed off using an air/water gun or high pressure water rig. For advice concerning application equipment contact your local Chemetall Aerospace Technologies Representative. The parts may then be dried or alternatively, where further processing will not take place immediately and some corrosion protection is desired, a dewatering fluid such as ARDROX 3961 or 3962 should be used. Water contamination of ARDROX 2480 must be avoided. immersed in ARDROX 2480. Components must be dry before being

As ARDROX 2480 has a wax seal incorporated it is necessary to use the whole contents of a container in order to maintain the correct balance of seal to solvent.
