      Re: Brutal efficiency....

      I think I bought my last drum about 2 -3 months ago - I'll have to look it up, but what is left of it still works Okay. It might be a little bit slower on some stuff, but if you leave it in there it will get it off. It doesn't dissolve it, it comes off in sheets. I've got a sample of some other stuff coming from these people: www.solventkleene.com

        Do you strain it to get out the 'sheets' of coating? Or just leave it in there and continue on?

        Doesnt it become just a bucket 'o **** after a few uses?

          I use a perforated strainer and scoop the "skins" out every couple of uses. The paint does not dissolve into the mixture, so it stays the same consistency, thin like water.

            So, your talking $360 for a 30 gallon drum, correct?

              I can't remember exactly what I paid, but that is real close. $12.00 - $13.00 per gallon. That includes delivery. They run their own trucks and come through this area every two weeks.

              My sample from Solventkleene came in today. They sent a small bottle with about 16 ounces in it. It worked pretty good on a piece of conduit that we had coated for a color sample. It dissolved the powder rather than causing it to release from the substrate in sheets. I will have to check more into this one as they claim it to be environmentally friendly.

              Hope this info is helping you.

                It is for sure.... helping me make up my mind what I want to do.

                Thanks. I will keep an eye on this thread to see how you like the new stuff.

                  Re: Brutal efficiency....

                  Ok first the disclaimer-- I have lots of experience with the equipment used in this experiment. DO NOT TRY THIS ON THIN METALS OR MAGNESIUM. Only try this outside. I do not want to hear I ruined my parts.

                  I have only tried this on sample parts so far and will not use it on customer parts until I see some feedback from here.

                  I was cutting with my cutting torch last night on the metal booth i am converting to an oven as I am watching the paint just disintegrate from this thing I am wondering what will this do to old powder coating? I have had an old aluminum wheel lying around I wanted to use for a sample piece but it had a really thick coat of factory powder coating on it that nothing I have used would strip successfully.

                  I used the torch with a low flame (very little oxygen) and passed the flame over the coating it would instantly pop and burn right off all I had to do was just pass over the area with the flame without stopping. I gave the wife the digital thermometer to monitor the temp of the wheel I completely stripped the wheel of all coating in less than 10 min the temp of the wheel never exceeded 300f and was around 270f when I finished. All the old coating is now ash and ready to enter the sandblaster for a quick etch.

                  I had already spent 1-1 1/2 hours trying to strip this wheel chemically and with alum oxide / black beauty and only had about 1/3 of it stripped. I had previously tried a handheld propane torch but it would barely make the coating bubble up.

                  I am going to change the tip to a brazing tip next time and try that it should work better without the chance if accidently cutting through something. What do you guys think? ever tried it? possible problems?

                    Jason,

                    Instead of using a brazing tip why not try a "rosebud" tip? This tip is used for heating metal and has a real broad flame! Run it the same way you ran your other tip, should cover more area in less time!

                      this might not be a bad idea at all. basically you have come up with a burn off oven but with out the heat soak. i am interested in more feedback as well.
                      when in doubt polish it out/ why replace it when you can refinish it

                        Thats a great idea I will try that. I just finished stripping a bathroom mirror frame the same way. My brother brought a wire type mirror frame with several small leaves in thin metal it was powder coated black and the round rods and for the framing and design are very time consuming to blast and the powder coating makes it more difficult. This thing is now coated in a white ash with no warping including the leaves all in less than 5 min.

                          You could try d-zolve, it has no meth. chloride. One stripper you can use at room temp. one you have to heat. They sent me two samples to try for free.

                              How long have you been using the rose bud tip? Any Problems so far?

                                I use the D-Zolve 1012 from solvent kleene. It does the trick pretty well. Its a little pricey though..
