Video: Cast Zinc Shot in Automotive Paint Removal Application
Automotive Paint Removal
The above 30-second clip was filmed in Transmet’s Shot Blasting Media Support Lab.
The part being blasted is an automotive paint fixture (or jig) covered in layers of paint. Using Transmet’s ZA4 Cast Zinc Shot in a blast cabinet, the fixture was stripped of all paint.
A paint line could have thousands of these fixtures and jigs and they are expensive to replace. Shot blasting with Cast Zinc Shot can prove to be a safer and more efficient alternative to chemical stripping, burn off, or shot blasting with more aggressive blast media.
