PPS AND MERRICK RETAIL SERVICES TEAM UP TO SOLVE A SUPPLY CHAIN PROBLEM
PPS Limited offers industrial paint removal and finishing services, including:
The preferred method for removing paint from parts that are sensitive to high temperatures. Chemical paint stripping uses industrial-strength chemical processes to weaken or break down the bond between the paint and the metal surface. Any paint remaining after several hours in the chemical bath is removed with high pressure water jets.
During the chemical immersion process, paint is removed from parts through submersion into water-based chemical solutions, which surround the metal, remove the organics and provide a clean part for your operations. After the part is cleaned and inspected, we pack it into the original container to return it to the customer.
PPS is committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner; therefore our chemical immersion process is compliant with all environmental standards. Not only do we believe in reusing parts that were mistakenly coated, but we also believe in keeping our air and water clean.
Coating Removal For Ferrous Materials Include:
Steel, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Steel Alloys
Benefits of Chemical Immersion
- Strong enough to deal with extremely tough adhesives
- Environmentally safe process and an efficient way to strip the coating from finished parts.
- Recommended paint stripping method for both ferrous and non-ferrous parts.
- Proven to remove organics from metals such as aluminum, aluminum wheels, stainless steel and thin gauged steel.
- Easily removes difficult coatings (E-coat, Powder Coats, Liquid Coat, Enamel, Polyester Paint, , Epoxies, Urethanes etc.)
- No tarnishing of polished aluminum or brass surfaces
- Less stress on the substrate which allows for better coating ability than other methods
- Clean surface with NO ash residue
- Prevents damage or distortion to the metal structure of parts that are sensitive to high temperatures
- All parts receive a final quality check before being shipped
In this process components are heated in furnaces to specified temperature ranges depending on the type of surface and materials being removed.
Parts are treated afterwards, to remove ash and residue. We then apply a thin layer of water-soluble inhibitor.
- 4 to 5-hour long process with temperatures reaching 850°F
- Controlled environmental emissions
- All parts receive a thorough quality check before being shipped
Also called Bake off ovens or pyrolytic cleaning, burn-off ovens have become the easiest, least expensive and safest way to strip powder-coated, liquid coated, e-coated and CARC painted parts and tooling. Burn-off ovens clean with gas fired burners to strip many different organic coatings from paint and powder coating lines.
A big challenge for the amateur and professional auto restorer is stripping body parts in preparation for the actual repairing and rebuilding of the project vehicle. If you are restoring a car, we have a battery of 20 ft long, 8 ft wide and 6 ft deep dipping tanks to remove paint and rust from miscellaneous steel and aluminum parts, such as:
- Complete Body Shells
- Doors, Hoods, Truck Lids and Fenders
- Car Frames, Suspension System
- Engine Blocks and Head
- Gas Tanks and Rims
- Truck Cabs
- Complete Boxes
- Tailgates and Sides
- Any Other Car and Engine Parts
Bringing the finish of restoration projects back to life commonly causes headaches. PPS allows for restoring the finish on the following items with the use of chemical and water removal to rejuvenate and smooth the surface:
- Metal and patio furniture
- Stadium and commercial seating
- Newspaper and display boxes
- Retail fixtures
- Industrial machinery parts
- Pumps and pump components
- Any steel or aluminum castings or assemblies
Plastic Media blasting uses soft, angular particles to effectively remove paint from delicate surfaces without causing damage. This method uses considerably lower pressure and stress to the material surface than other abrasive blasting techniques.
In addition, the plastic media can be collected and reused, making it an environmentally-friendly alternative to other industrial cleaning methods, and reducing the amount of hazardous waste.
- One of the more popular techniques due to the combination of effectiveness and low risk of damage
- Used for de-flashing, de-burring, removal of powder coating, mold cleaning, cleaning of engine parts and paint stripping
- Should be used in ventilated areas
This method of abrasive blasting aggressively cuts through coatings while also leaving an etched surface to better prepare it for adhesion of a new coating material.
Steel grit is available in varying types and degrees of hardness that can be selected based on the material being blasted and the end goal.
- Effective both for coating removal and as a surface preparation process
- A highly adaptable process depending on the material being blasted
This immersion pickling process provides a clean, blush free surface optimal for re-finishing.
The rust prevention process extends the lifetime of machinery and production parts. We offer rustproofing and corrosion resistant coating services as part of our surface preparation services.
- Improve the longevity of your production parts
- Maintain quality standards
PPS, a leader in the automotive support industry, provides comprehensive cleaning and management of paint booth systems. Work includes booth cleaning, process labor support, fixture cleaning, robotics support, air balancing, light maintenance and inventory management.
PPS evaluates the data obtained from automotive paint system performance monitoring to modify cleaning schedules and operational approaches, resulting in improvements in first-time pass rate capabilities. Our integrated approach results in higher production efficiencies and contributes substantially to cost savings programs.
Understanding a facility and its equipment prior to cleaning ensures that equipment is not damaged and continues to run in peak condition.
We improve system reliability by evaluating and documenting current practices and engineering alternatives that reduce downtime and improve efficiency. Trained technicians clean process equipment, repair any damage found upon inspection and rebuild components when necessary.
PPS’ in-house engineering team routinely designs cutting-edge cleaning solutions to improve both safety and project efficiency.
PPS offers waterjetting cleaning solutions, ranging from 10,000 to 40,000 psi, spanning across multiple industries and applications.
PPS recognizes that safety is paramount when waterjetting. Our employees undergo a rigorous program of both theoretical and practical hands-on training at one of our many facilities across the country. PPS ensures precision and efficiency, allowing our customers to continue operations while minimizing downtime while waterjetting services are being provided.
Our batch degreasing process removes working lubricants from your production parts. We can strip drawing compounds, forging lubricants and anti-corrosion coatings.

Multiple Backup Solutions
High Quality Work
Proactive & Dependable
25+ Years of Experience
We work with you to identify the most effective way to clean and prepare your parts for re-use. Our extensive experience with metal surface preparation allows us to find the perfect solution for every challenge.
Parts that aren’t sensitive to temperature can be cleaned effectively in one of our thermal furnaces, which reaches temperatures of up to 850 F. After paint and other debris is burned away, we treat parts to remove any residue and prepare them for re-use.
We use chemical baths to treat materials that may weaken or distort under high temperature. After immersion, parts are then sprayed and treated as needed.
Media blasting can be used to give a greater amount of control than alternative cleaning methods and to avoid the risk of damage. We choose between varieties of plastic or steel grit when blasting, depending on the surface being cleaned.
Industrial parts washing can be used to efficiently clean products in bulk and to break down accumulated dirt, oils and corrosion on metal paint hooks, fixtures, jigs and racks.
We keep your business running on schedule! Our fleet of trucks and backup solutions means that your products will always be ready and waiting for use, avoiding any costly downtime.
