Biostrip Wheel Stripper is now one of the leading products for water based wheel stripping

This unique formulation uses water as the main ingredient and is free form methylene chloride and hydrofluoric acid commonly found in traditional style “cold strippers”.

Key Benefits Include:

  • Strips at temperatures from  70°c to 85°c
  • Outstanding, proven performance in bench tests against competitors products
  • Short strip time for many  OEM primers
  • Faster strip time for polyester hybrids and varnish on recoated wheels
  • Not ADR Regulated for transport
  • Safer to use than traditional cold acid wheel strippers
  • Acid free, safe on magnesium wheels

Before using this type of product, consideration should be given to the application itself.

304 Stainless steel should be used for Wheel stripping tanks. Polypropylene or high density polyethylene can be used, however these materials will restrict the maximum temperature at which the stripper can be run. The tank must be lidded to prevent evaporation, lagged to prevent heat loss and equipped with some means of thermostatically controlled heating. Agitation will not be required on a properly designed tank. For fast removal of paint, Biostrip wheel stripper must be heated to 70C or above.

Stripping time depends on temperature. The hotter the tank the faster it strips. A typical non-German wheel will take around 2 hours and a German OEM wheel around 3 hours. A few wheels may need overnight stripping, but this will be rare. Biostrip Wheelstrip does not attack the alloy wheel and therefore wheels can be left in for extended periods if necessary. Eg: for economy run at lower temperatures and strip overnight.

Once the wheel has been stripped, it must be power washed to remove residual paint stripper, which, if left on, will adversely affect subsequent paint. Whilst Biostrip wheel stripper gives an excellent performance on most substrates, loads should never be mixed in the strip tank, ie. only strip alloy wheels with other alloy wheels, never with steel wheels.

We can supply our own tanks, from 4 wheel systems upwards.
