PRLog - Jan. 31, 2012 - Never one to rest on their laurels, Pexa starts the New Year with a new product range announcement.  French coatings removal specialist, Sofiplast Group has appointed Pexa as its UK agent to market and manage their range of ecological paint stripping equipment - http://www.pexa.co.uk/en/products/equipment/paint_stripping_equipment

Using dry wheatstarch in a low pressure stream, the Sofiplast system removes paint from any substrate quickly and efficiently; but its key advantage is its safety.  No harmful chemicals are used, meaning safety for substrates, operatives and the environment.  In addition, because the Sofiplast system operates at a very low pressure, users can expect a reduction in energy costs and noise levels.

Wheatstarch stripping is approved for use by Boeing, Beech and Bombardier along with numerous aerospace facilities across Europe.  

MD of Pexa Jim Rowbotham commented “2012 is going to be a very busy and productive year; kicking it off with this important new partnership with Sofiplast is a sign of what the industry can expect from us.  We choose to represent products only after close scrutiny and the Sofiplast system was no exception.  Its ecological credentials and efficiency makes it a highly attractive proposition for our customers.”

Pexa is offering trial stripping of components, either on their customers’ own sites or at the Sofiplast facilities.

Editors Notes:

Sofiplast Technical information

The Sofiplast system uses dry wheatstarch in a low pressure stream to remove paint from any substrate. Key advantages of the system are:

- Quick and efficient process
- No harmful chemicals required
- Safe for all substrates including composites, plastics and thin metals
- Approved for aerospace applications
- Low pressure application 1-3.5 bars means low energy and noise
- Leaves a smooth “ready to go” surface
- Allows selective stripping of specific layers of paint

The details below are for information purposes only and can vary depending on the application:

- Stripping rate up to 15m²/hour.
- Media used from 5 to 8 kg/hour (can be re-used).
- Working pressure between 1 and 3,5 bars.
- Low pressure ensures reduced air consumption.

For example with a 10mm nozzle the consumption of compressed air:

- with a 2 bar-pressure is equivalent to 2200L/min
- with a 6 bar-pressure is equivalent to 8200L/min

This gives an average of 6000L/min, equivalent to 360m3/min.
