Paint Detackification for automotive and industrial paint systems

We offer a Total water treatment solution to any Client including Paint Detackification, Waste Water, Effluent systems, Boilers, Heat Exchangers, and Co-AG treatments. Norlex Chemicals have extensive experience working on every type of solids removal program.

“Removing organic solids in Paint Systems along with other Industrial or Wastewater systems is the core business solution. We also specialize in Technical Engineering Solutions to increase the productivity and Quality of any Paint System or Industrial process.”

We have developed chemicals that not only provide detackification but also denature and change the physical activity of the organic solid in the systems. We offer our chemicals to anyone anywhere that need support with solids removal or processing.

Norlex Chemicals work close together with our clients to use their current running systems to capture, denature, flock and process solids. 

We treat chemically and technically the SOLID whatever that solid may be

Manufacturing of Wet Paint Systems and Industrial Water Systems is divided into three options.

Floating of the denatured solids


Sinking of the denatured solids


Suspending the denatured solids

Norlex Chemicals can apply chemical and technical processes to any of these options. We ensure our clients of a productive chemical process, using their current systems design parameters or increase their productivity, by designing and engineering new and improved parameters.

The range of Paint and Industrial solids applications covers all known systems – from the latest in water-based paints to the most basic solvent-based paints, lacquers, Acrylics etc.…, as well as Mixed Paint systems. All of these are compatible with our chemical and technical process.

Complete customised solutions

We have extensive experience working on every type of solids removal program and use a methodical approach to demonstrate the fit and capabilities of our technology.

Each Industrial process or paint system is unique in both manufacturing and operation requiring a unified mechanical, operational and chemical approach to optimise performance.

Our team of highly experienced and technically qualified project engineers focus on providing optimum performance for each unique system.

We serve you all the way from testing, start-up and operation to subsequent constructive feedback and servicing.

Paint detackifiction to reduce total cost

We strive to use the existing system to optimize, stabilize and increase productivity. We believe that every system can be continually optimized to achieve cost reductions. In the planning phase we will setup a Cost Management Program to ensure that improvements to the system always stay cost-effective. Contact us for more information
