Stripping nickel from Inconel 718

Ask an Expert From: Products Finishing,

Posted on: 4/1/2008

Could you please advise me of the best way to strip sulfamate nickel off of Inconel 718 base material? Is there a risk of damaging the part if it is stripped in 50% nickel due to the high nickel content of the base material?

Q: Could you please advise me of the best way to strip sulfamate nickel off of Inconel 718 base material? Is there a risk of damaging the part if it is stripped in 50% nickel due to the high nickel content of the base material? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. J.T.

 

A: Unfortunately, I do not have experience in this, although I did find some alkaline stripping products on the Internet—products that would likely remove the nickel plating.

I would suggest talking to the supplier of your nickel sulfamate chemicals, or reviewing suppliers on www.pfonline.com for suggestions.
