In the BiMed project, SCOURING ENVIRONNEMENT, a French SME specialized in scouring and cleaning with environmental friendly blasting processes for a large spectrum of applications including aeronautics, proposes to perform a comprehensive evaluation of two blasting techniques specifically dedicated to paint removal on metallic and composite substrates and varnish removal on interior furniture. In that perspective, SCOURING ENVIRONNEMENT has partnered to RESCOLL, a private research company specialized in composites and polymers and owning the well-known Nadcap accreditation. The BiMed partners expect that the project should pave the way for the qualification and the industrialization of a cost-effective aircraft stripping method based on bicarbonate media blasting in accordance with future environmental regulation.
The main objective of the BiMed project is to validate a versatile and cost effective blasting process for removing paint and varnish from aircraft structures and parts that will minimize process waste and comply with environmental regulations without sacrificing efficiency nor causing substrate damage.
