Paint Stripping Drying and Sanding Process

Paint Stripping Drying and Sanding Process

An easy way of giving painted surfaces a fresh look is by stripping them. From furniture to cast iron surfaces, you can remove paint and apply another coat or any other finishing. At Premium Door and Furniture, we offer professional stripping services for a broad range of items. Our stripping process involves immersing objects in caustic soda. Through power jetting, we wash an item to eliminate the paint coating. After neutralising the surface to remove any excess chemical, we dry it. Our sanding and drying processes are efficient and ensure that a surface is ready for another finishing.

The Drying Process

After stripping paint from metal or wooden surfaces, they have to dry completely. Moisture attraction is one property of caustic-based paint strippers, which increases the need for proper drying. Whether it’s a wooden or metal surface, a surface has to dry completely to reduce the risk of rot and rust. Damp surfaces are also hard to repaint or refinish. With Premium Door Stripping, we use heated drying rooms to remove all the excess moisture from items. The rooms are fitted with state-of-the-art dehumidifiers that guarantee this.

The Sanding Process

Sanding is necessary to smoothen surfaces after paint stripping. Using sandpaper on wood requires skills to get it right. Too much or not enough pressure may damage the surface. Our paint stripping experts have worked with all kinds of wooden surfaces from antiques to skirting boards to deck railings. We ensure that each surface achieves the highest level of sanding to make the finishing part easy.

When you need restoration of metal or wooden pieces, Premium Door Stripping is the ultimate service to turn to for the highest standards. Once we finish with the chemical stripping, our drying and sanding processes ensure that you get the best results.
