Do you have dirty paint racks that need cleaning? Did the paint system malfunction and leave you with thousands of mispainted production items? Did someone leave raw steel stock or parts setting out in the weather and now you have a rusty mess? In the fast paced race for quality and efficiency in production, paint removal or derusting is not a job that many companies want to gear up to do in house. Constant changing government regulations, labor problems and a messy process are just a few of the reasons why many companies prefer to have us take care of their metal cleaning needs.

Bare Metal has been serving Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee and Missouri for 30 years. Our experienced employees and management will work closely with your company representatives to serve in meeting your paint removal, degreasing, or media blasting needs.

Our 30,000 square foot facility offers a wide range of capabilities on a scale large enough to clean an Army tank and small delicate hospital surgical instruments. Grandmother's antique iron bed, your son's bike frame, or that lawn furniture that is starting to look old and worn out are just a few items that we can fix for you. If it's metal, we've probably cleaned it before. We work closely with area painters, platers, and metallurgists to provide a complete service that will meet the needs of almost any customer. We provide pick-up and delivery and rush orders for customers in a critical need for a fast turn-around situation.

Our processes are in compliance with local, state, and federal environmental regulations. Upon request, we can provide copies of our E.P.A. permits or permit numbers as they are needed for record keeping.

If you think we can be of service to you, give us a call or e-mail us for further information.

coatings from items such as steel beams or weldments up to 21 feet in length. Temperatures can be
maintained and monitored to within three degrees of the desired setting, allowing us in some instances
to remove coatings from even aluminum substrates. Each oven has its own afterburner system to insure
that they are operating within environmental guidelines. We have our own maintenance capabilities to
combat against any unusual downtimes. The production schedules of our industrial customers are a
number one priorityin determining our schedules. If you say you need it back the next day, we’ll make
it happen. We maintain and produce our own inhouse racks and tooling used in our processes in order
to be able to meet our customer’s specific production needs. If you need hangers and racks cleaned
for your paint production, we can keep you supplied and on schedule.
