Berlin, April 14, 2022 -​ Atotech will be joining this year’s PaintExpo, held April 26 – 29 at the Exhibition Center in Karlsruhe, Germany. Considered to be the world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technology, the show is the perfect opportunity for coating service providers and in-house coating companies from all over the world to discuss the latest innovations, trends and future technologies.

Meet us at booth 3120 in hall 3 and learn more about our sustainable and highly efficient paint removal system – Master Remover® and UniPrep® AC – Atotech’s sustainable and safe weld and laser cutting scale removal solutions.

Our key highlights at the PaintExpo:

 Master Remover® paint removal solutions plus Master Remover® ESPRIT

In combination with Atotech’s Master Remover® chemical process line Master Remover® ESPRIT, our paint stripping equipment provides a precisely matched, high-quality, efficient, and sustainable in-house paint stripping solution for paint applicators. From liquid to powder to ecoat paints, Master Remover® offers single pass cleaning, with the additional benefits of long life, low energy, and low waste. Master Remover® processes can also be implemented for high value, light metal part reclamation. Even complex geometry, multi metal components like wiper arms or zinc surfaces in under hood / under body brackets can be cleaned 100% in one-step with absolutely no etch.

Master Remover® ESPRIT is a robust, skid-mounted paint stripping unit designed as a plug-and-play solution to best meet the specific needs of each applicator. The modular system includes several features that enable Atotech’s Master Remover® chemical processes to operate at peak efficiency and sustainability, reducing energy consumption and waste significantly.

UniPrep® AC  ̶  a line of sustainable weld and laser scale removal products

UniPrep® AC provides superior paint coverage on weld and laser cut areas without the use of labor intensive and hazardous mechanical methods. UniPrep® AC products are free of many hazardous or regulated substances, including alkylphenol ethoxylates (APE), phosphorus and boron as well as phosphoric, hydrofluoric, hydrochloric, and nitric acids and can operate at near neutral pH, satisfying many customers and regulatory requirements.

UniPrep® AC descalers help to minimize premature paint failures with improved cleaning and descaling of welds and laser cuts while minimizing surface etching and pitting. By reducing the iron build up through lower etch rates, applicators can achieve extended solution life, resulting in reduced burden on wastewater treatment operations. The unique formulations of UniPrep® AC support both organic and inorganic soil removal and, when used in combination with UniPrep® alkaline cleaners and Interlox® conversion coatings, offer the pinnacle in performance capabilities.

Join us at booth 3120 in hall 3 of Exhibition Center Karlsruhe and take the opportunity to discuss new ideas and technologies with our technical experts. We look forward to meeting you there!
