Insourcing of the paint stripping process: the experience of Metra Color on the pages of Verniciatura Industriale

In December 2020, Metra Color installed the Fastrip T5 paint stripping tank at its Brescia headquarters. Read the full article.

Metra Color, a leading company in the aluminium sector, has installed the Fastrip T5 chemical paint stripping tank with a capacity of 800 litres at its plant in Rodengo Saiano (BS, Italy). The decision to internalize this process, often delegated to external companies, arises from the fact that the stripping of hooks and frames is of crucial importance as it affects both the coating process and the quality of the final product.

With the aim of reducing the costs and time required for stripping by external companies, Metra opted in December 2020 for the insourcing of this process.


Fastrip T5 is the range of paint stripping tanks with a capacity of 800 litres, developed by ALIT Technologies, which combines sturdiness, flexibility and process efficiency and allows to efficiently remove paint from hooks, frames or pieces to be recovered, whether they are of ferrous metals or light alloys, without compromising their surfaces.

Fastrip T5 is built on the concept of “tank within a tank”: the sealed external tank also serves a safety basin for fluid containment. Furthermore, our systems – made in AISI-304 – are equipped with a separate self-supporting plug-and-play touchscreen control panel and fully programmable cycle parameters.

The Fastrip T5 system is available in three versions, which combine a chemical and mechanical action for optimal stripping:

  • T5-US with ultrasound technology;
  • T5-MIX with a mechanical mixer;
  • T5-MT with a series of tanks in parallel with gantry-type handling.

The paint stripping process is optimized by the use of paint strippers from our Metalstrip Up&Down range.
