General Chemical’s Peelkleer 1830 is a CLEAR water removable or strippable coating. Temporary protective coatings such as 1830 for various application such as Auto Body shop Paint booth, paint booth windows and paint booth light fixtures where paint over spray accumulation must be readily removed. Protective Coatings and peelable maskant such as 1830 can be removed by water or peeling . In Paint booth It will maximize Paint booth illumination and remain non-dusting. Thus, application of Peelkleer 1830 coating in auto body shop Paint Booth will result in optimum paint finish and minimize rejects.
Peelkleer 1830 represents the ultimate in non-solvent strippable coatings. It is well stabilized against brittleness and it will not be softened or penetrated by solvent-based paints.
Peelkleer 1830 is normally used as received. It is applied by airless spray gun equipment, by roller coating or by brushing. Sprayed coating is air-dried from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on thickness of coating. Peelkleer 1830 is usually applied to form a film, thickness in the range of 1 to 3 mil (.001″ to .003″). Coating is usually resistant to attack by paint solvents. Spraying temperature shall be 60 F minimum. For best results, apply at room temperature.
Peelkleer 1830 was developed to be removed by water jet or by peeling.
Water rinse Peelkleer 1830 presents no fire hazard either as received or during or after application.
During removal, water hose-down type coatings will oftentimes be mixed into the paint spray booth water compound system. Peelkleer 1830 coating is normally compatible with this kind of system.

Peelkleer 1830 is uniquely formulated excluding ingredients that are deleterious to the painting process (such as silicones) or the water wash system (such as foam generation or stabilizing ingredients).
1.When applying Peelkleer 1830, use the same protection as used while applying paint. The booth ventilation system should be operating while the material is being sprayed.1.When applying Peelkleer 1830, use the same protection as used while applying paint. The booth ventilation system should be operating while the material is being sprayed. 2.Chemical goggles and impervious gloves should be worn when handling or mixing.
3.Use of non-sparking metal is advised to scrape or spud to remove booth coating to avoid fire hazard from accumulated paint.
FIRST TIME APPLICATION:
I. Pre-cleaning of Equipment:
To clean pressure pot, airless equipment, spray guns, spray lines, do the following:
1.Flush equipment and lines with current paint thinner. (ex. Toluene, MEK, Xylene, etc.)
2.Follow with a water reducible solvent such as Butyl Cellosolve. This will help remove solvent residue.
3.Now thoroughly rinse with water. Make sure all solvent and paint residue are removed.
II. Pre-cleaning of Spray Booth Walls:
To clean all surfaces where Peelkleer 1830 is to be applied, do the following if the last peelable coating that was used was a solvent-based product ( this will aid in the first time peel/water removal of Peelkleer 1830 )
1.Clean surface with butyl-cellosolve type cleaner.
2.Remove all previous peelable coating, oils and dirt, and solvent residue from surface. NOTE: You do not have to do this cleaning step to have Peelkleer 1830 peel/water rinse off of the surface, although this aids in the first time water rinse/peel of the product. Second and continuous applications can eliminate this step.
3.You are now ready to use Peelkleer 1830.
SOME EQUIPMENT NOTES:
Airless System: Recommended tip size is .070. Similar to a glue tip will suffice.
Peelkleer 1830 can also be applied by roller coating or by brushing
