Kolene® molten salts can quickly and completely remove unwanted carbide coatings – without base metal attack. A simple immersion process, followed by water rinsing, results in a surface ready for recoating. Since it’s a purely chemical process, no part damage or dimensional change occurs. It is also ideal for maintenance stripping or overspray on clamps and jigs.
Widely specified in OEM Repair and Overhaul specifications, our processes can remove plasma coatings – including chrome carbide, tungsten carbide, and select ceramics.
An added benefit is surface scale conditioning during the stripping process, allowing quick and easy part cleanup.
