Today, the average vehicle is made up of more types of substrates than ever seen before, including: steel, aluminum, plastics, composites and fiberglass. This makes the removal of coatings from any type of vehicle very difficult. In addition, paint systems are more complex than ever before. With the new breed of coatings for painters to learn to use, all of these new coatings, as well as the ones currently being used, behave questionably when applied over existing paint.
Paint manufacturers offer performance statements that read, "when applied to a properly prepared surface...". The method of choice for creating this surface is Plastic Media Blasting. It is the recommended method for stripping all Ford and General Motors vehicles. We have the ability to do this as well as sandblasting, both methods have their purposes and work well for their specific applications.
