What products do Planet Paints supply to the Panel Trade?

1 - Gunwash solvent (supplied in 20’s and 200’s)


Planet Paints distills waste from the automotive refinish trade, yielding a high quality solvent. This is then distributed back to the trade either directly or through a solvent distributor. Our product is superior/crystal clear when compared to other recycled solvents.  Planet Paints focus is on the intrinsic value of 'actual' waste components. By segregating streams, similar chemical types can be processed together. This approach yields superior recycled solvent and known paint solids which can be formulated into various industrial surface coatings. e.g. - Automotive refinish waste solvent yields residue which can be formulated into a high quality, two component concrete coating suitable for exterior or interior exposure. The heavily pigmented part of the waste stream is formulated into an economical industrial primer.

What happens to the solvent waste once Planet Paints takes it away?

1. Waste solvent recovery service
- solvents used for wash in the automotive refinish trade are collected and recycled by Planet Paints. Due to our patent applied for method of distillation we are able to use the paint once solvent has been distilled off. This is what would end up as land fill.
2. Waste solvent distilling and redistribution
- solvents are distilled and sold back to the automotive refinish trade for use as an economical cleaning solvent
3. Distillation of residues (paint solids)
- residues from the above process are reformulated into quality 2-component coatings for industrial and domestic use.
