Thanks to the experience gained through forty years of activity, SIMET proposes a new and innovative metalworking process applicable also to aluminum: green etCHing™.
The green etCHing™ chemical milling represents a new milling method using a non-corrosive but smoothing method of removal.
Chemical paint-stripping This process requires plunging the components in special paint-stripping products, differentiated according to the type of material to be treated and created by Simet in cooperation with a a major chemical firm. All paint-stripping products are environment-friendly, chloride- and phenol-free with a low environmental impact; they enable to remove any kind of paint from iron, aluminium,

This procedure is performed only through heat: paint is incinerated without altering
Grit-blasting Thanks to its rotating table, rotating hook, rubber belt and steel belt shot-blasting machines, Simet can treat items of any given dimension and weight with 0.3 to 2 mm shots, up to an SA 2.5 finishing level. A forty-years experience gained in surface treatments has enabled Simet to design a FINE SHOT-BLASTING innovative procedure fit for prestigious and
