Degreasing and cleaning is the first step in the pretreatment process and involves removing dirt, dust, grease, or other contaminants from the surface. This can be done by washing, degreasing or using other suitable cleaning methods.

Stripping usually refers to the removal of old layers of paint, varnish or other coatings from the surface. This can be done using chemical cleaners or by mechanical removal such as e.g. grinding or scraping. The purpose of cleaning is to get a clean surface without old coatings so that a new coating can be applied.
Degreasing, on the other hand, focuses on removing grease, oil, dirt and other contaminants from the surface that can prevent good adhesion of the new coating. Degreasing can be done using degreasers or cleaning agents specially formulated to remove grease and dirt. The purpose of degreasing is to ensure a clean and clear surface that is free of grease and dirt, so that the paint or varnish can bond well to the surface.
Wiping is an important part of the pretreatment process before painting or varnishing. After cleaning and degreasing the surface, it is essential to remove any residues of cleaning agents or contaminants in order to achieve a clean and clear surface ready for the application of paint or varnish. Wiping involves the use of suitable equipment such as cloths or wiping paper, which are specially designed for the purpose. These materials are often made of soft and absorbent materials that do not scratch or damage the surface. They help to remove excess liquids and ensure that the surface is dry and free of dust, fluff and other particles.
Avoid static electricity
In the coating process, static electricity can be a challenge, especially when working with non-conductive materials such as plastic, paper, wood and textiles. This can lead to a number of problems that affect the quality and finish. We offer various products that effectively reduce or eliminate the build-up of static electricity on surfaces.
Important steps in surface treatment
All processes are important steps in the pretreatment of surfaces, but they have different purposes and focus on different types of contamination. Cleaning is specifically aimed at removing old coatings, while degreasing aims to remove grease and grime to achieve a clean and adhesive surface.
