CH3003 Paint Stripper

Environmentally Friendly, Acid Activated Aircraft Paint Stripper

  • Environment-friendly with lower risks health, and safety.
  • Made with biodegradable, low odour, low VOC non-aromatic solvents.
  • Does not contain methylene chloride, NMP, phenols, amines, nitrites, or chromates.
  • Adjusted thixotropy: clings to vertical, inclined, and overhead surfaces.
  • Slow evaporation and effective paint stripping.
  • Application: brushing and airless non atomizing spraying equipment.
  • Safe on aircraft metals including aluminium, steel and titanium.
  • Biodegradable formulation.
  • Recyclable Packaging.

CH3003 is an improved acid-activated aircraft paint stripper. It is non water based and non-flammable. With low VOC biodegradable non-aromatic solvents, CH3003 has low odour and is non-volatile. Designed for where phenolic types are not recommended, this environmentally friendly thixotropic paint stripper effectively and rapidly strips typical aircraft paint/primer systems like polyurethane, epoxies, epoxy primers etc.

CH3003 is best used with high pressure (5:1 or 10:1) spray pumps, coupled with high pressure hose and spray wand, using a fan size tip nozzle.

1.Remove all oil and dirt with Callington’s CH087 Exterior Aircraft Cleaner, or equivalent, before stripping. The surfaces must be clean and completely dry before treating with a stripper.

2.Optimum results are achieved if hangar temperature is above 20⁰C.

3.Before applying the stripper, cover any sensitive areas that may be damaged by CH3003 like electronics, magnesium, cadmium or plastics.

4.Spray or brush CH-3003 onto surface to be stripped.

5.Spray Application: Spray an even, light coat of CH3003, starting from the bottom of the aircraft and working upward. Approx. 1L/m2 of CH3003 will be used for efficient stripping.

6.Keep the surface wet with CH3003 until the paint starts to buckle.

7.Allow for sufficient contact time (1-5 hours to overnight on tough coatings) or more depending on the ambient temperature, paint system and thickness of paint to be stripped. Reapply CH3003 paint stripper as required.

8.When the paint is starting to lift, brush the surface area to remove any loose paint.

9.When all paint is lifted, agitate the surface to remove the loosened paint and any residual stripper.

10.For optimal results apply an alkaline cleaning solution (CH087, CH511c or CH8100) to effectively remove any contaminants or paint stripper residual.

11.After finishing the stripping process, collect stripper and paint residue into clean plastic waste bins for disposal as solid waste according to local trade waste regulations.

12.Finally, rinse the surface with high pressure water.
