Why pulsed laser cleaning is better for stripping paint？
January 9, 2024
The use of a pulsed laser in paint removal has been widely studied and applied because of its advantages of low environmental pollution, high paint stripping efficiency, and automatic operation.
Pulsed laser cleaning is a technique that uses short bursts of high-intensity laser light to remove paint and other contaminants from metal surfaces. Compared to continuous wave laser cleaning, pulsed laser cleaning has several advantages, such as:
Higher efficiency and faster removal speed, because the pulsed laser delivers more energy per unit area than the continuous laser
Lower thermal effect and less damage to the substrate, because the pulsed laser has a shorter interaction time with the material and allows more cooling between pulses
More precise and selective cleaning, because the pulsed laser can be adjusted to match the properties of the paint and the substrate, and can target specific areas without affecting the surrounding regions
Pulsed laser cleaning is widely used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and shipbuilding, where paint removal is required for maintenance, inspection, or repair purposes. Pulsed laser cleaning is also an environmentally friendly and safe method, as it does not produce any harmful waste or noise
