With the icy weather most of the U.S. has experienced over the past few weeks, this reminded us of the fact that many American will likely suffer some damage to their auto bodies either from the elements themselves or roadway accidents, which will keep our friends in the car painting business quite busy over the months ahead. Auto painting in many types of manufacturing facilities and independent paint shops rely on clean Paint Circulation Systems and clean paint lines to provide quality painted surfaces. When a paint circulation system doesn’t function properly, the quality of the paint application can suffer. A clean and efficient circulation system is the key to a successful error and defect free surface area.

Finding out the cause or source of system issues can be a painstaking process to discover and resolve.  There are many potential causes, but if the system has been maintained with regular maintenance cleanings, this will help to eliminate paint system defects.

Using Gage Products patented Solventborne Cobra® and Waterborne Hydra® Paint Line Cleaners combined with our proven Paint Line Cleaning Program will restore a paint circulation system to design specifications.  This process involves mechanically and chemically “scrubbing” the paint and other contaminants off the surface of the piping system.

The Gage Products Bare Metal Clean system guarantee utilizes:

  • Patented line cleaning agents
  • On-site technical supervision
  • Detailed system-specific cleaning procedures
  • A detailed site safety plan completed prior to the start of the cleaning

This innovative cleaning solution is a customized technology for OEM recommended annual deep stripping of paint system and circulation systems, sealer systems and heat exchangers.

Gage Products has built its reputation on high quality, value-driven products and services.  All of our products are carefully planned and researched in order to ensure product integrity and solution quality.  Our Bare Metal Clean System using Solventborne and Waterborne Paint Line Cleaning Programs are no different than our other high quality products and services.  We’d be happy to speak with you about this in more depth, give us a call.

New and Improved: Hydra™ and Cobra® Paint Line Cleaners

This month, Gage Products is pleased to announce two updates to our paint line cleaner product family: the relaunched, reformulated Cobra® solventborne cleaner, and the brand new Hydra™ waterborne cleaner. Each is capable of restoring paint circulation lines to Bare Metal Clean conditions, when proper protocol is followed, making switches between paint colors and types quicker and simpler than ever.

How do they work? Both Cobra® and Hydra™ use the scrubbing action of tiny plastic beads to mechanically scrub your paint lines clean, combined with Gage’s expertise in custom purge formulations to ensure that Bare Metal Clean specs are met. This combination ensures that one cleaning cycle – consisting of pre-cleaner, line cleaner, post flush, then purge solvent – is all that you’ll need, and your paint lines will be back up and running in an efficient manner. What’s more, Cobra® is the only line cleaner you’ll need for your solventborne paint lines, and Hydra™ will take care of all of your waterborne needs. Each cleaner is technology-blind, which means that it will work for any paint chemistry, color, or formulation.

Both Cobra® and Hydra™ are safer than chemical-based paint line cleaners, in keeping with Gage’s mission of sustainability and stewardship. With the additional benefits to your process and efficiency, we’re confident that we provide the ideal range of options for any type of paint line system you may have. Contact us to learn more.
