AUTOMOTIVE (Our specialty)

If your building a street rod, muscle car (or truck), a classic, daily driver, doing restoration at a concourse level, or creating the next show circuit winner, American Stripping Company’s gentle, dry, micro-mineral blast cleaning process guarantees you will “Start with the perfect finish” ™ every time.

We are craftsman at our trade, leading our industry, with over 5,000 vehicles stripped since April of 1984, you can entrust your project to American Stripping Company, knowing you will receive the highest quality workmanship possible. When it comes to automotive paint and rust removal we pride ourselves on being at the quality end of the spectrum, and share in your passion with the automobile.

Surfaces are gently abraded using our micro-mineral abrasive which has the ability to retain it’s superior cutting quality as it breaks down enabling us to recycle, and reuse it at a super fine grit size, also allowing us to use low air pressures. This means minimal tempeture change to the item being blast cleaned, therefore no warping or distortion of the metal occurs. Our process is safe for threaded areas and won’t work harden metal. Rust, paint and other coatings are removed leaving a light tooth or etched anchor pattern to the surface, perfect for the adhesion of an epoxy primer or the coating of your choice. We can also remove the heavier, more stubborn coatings such as undercoating and body fillers when needed.
