The items are dipped in a warm bath of caustic soda for 45 minutes. Dipped a few times of paint some of the items may need to be dipped few times at a shorter intervals to remove the maximum amount of paint .
Once the dipping process is completed the items are ready to be washed .
The Washing Process
We remove the residue of any paint or build up materials with a power wash until the items are fully clean and ready to be delivered back to our customers .
Neutralisation (highly recommended )
We apply the product to neutralise the item for safety purposes and to minimise the smell of caustic soda post dipping.
Drying and sanding
The items that require further preparation are dried in a separate room .
Once they are completely dry we start sanding them down by hand to achieve a smooth surface, ready for the finishing touches .
The items that are fully restored will have a finishing product applied to them.
Our finishing products are wax and oil .This is agreed with our customers depending on the desired shades and colours .
