Paint Detackification

Wet paint booth systems can present numerous challenges to keep the process running efficiently. These include – 1) neutralizing and conditioning the paint overspray and booth water, 2) separating the conditioned paint from the booth water for solids removal and returning clean water to the booth(s), and 3) controlling foam in the booths and booth pits/sumps so it doesn’t interfere with the process.
Products designed for paint detackification applications include:

Coagulants

GCC 045 High charge density cationic polymer that is very effective in coagulating colloidal dispersions and removing organics and color from waste or process streams. GCC 045 PDS

GCC 449 Low molecular weight inorganic polymer used as a primary coagulant. GCC 449 PDS

GCC 474 Liquid coagulant blend for use in coagulating organic matter in industrial wastewater streams. GCC 474 PDS

Detackifiers/”Detack”

GCC 825 Liquid organic polymer used as a paint detackifier/coagulant in water wash paint booths. Also effective in coagulating organic dispersions in water and process streams. GCC 825 PDS

GCC 831 Aqueous organic polymer solution used as a paint detackifier/coagulant in water wash paint booths. Also effective in coagulating organic dispersions in water and process streams. GCC 831 PDS

GCC 836 Natural polymer inorganic blend used as a paint detackifier/coagulant. Also effective in coagulating organic dispersions in water and process streams. GCC 836 PDS

GCC 870 Complex mixture of inorganic and organic polymers used as a paint detackifier/coagulant. Also effective in coagulating organic dispersions in water and process streams. GCC 870 PDS

Flocculants

GCC 810 High molecular weight cationic polymer used in process water or waste streams as a settling agent, in dissolved air flotation, and sludge dewatering applications. GCC 810 PDS

GCC 811 Pre-diluted high molecular weight cationic polymer with similar applications to GCC 810. GCC 811 PDS (1)

GCC 853 High molecular weight anionic polymer supplied as an emulsion.  Excellent flocculent that can be used alone or in combination with inorganic coagulants, polyamines or polyDADMAC.  GCC 853 PDS

Defoamers

GCC 715 General purpose defoamer for use in industrial process streams.
GCC 715 PDS

GCC 718 General purpose defoamer for use in industrial process streams.  Cold weather version of GCC 715.  GCC 718 PDS (1)

GCC 805 General purpose defoamer for use in industrial process streams.  Oil based version of GCC 807. GCC 805 PDS

GCC 807 General purpose defoamer for use in industrial process streams. GCC 807 PDS

Wetting Agents

GCC 804 General purpose wetting agent for use in water paint booth systems. GCC 804 PDS

Miscellaneous

GCC 010 Alternate alkalinity source/pH buffer for paint spray booth programs.  Used in conjunction with a paint detackifier. GCC 010 PDS

GCC 601 Anionic, organic low molecular weight polymer that is effective as a dispersant and scale inhibotor. GCC 601 PDS
