The stripping of electrodeposited and flame-sprayed coatings is a necessary part of surface finishing. Stripping may be required to allow for the re-plating of a part rejected due to defective finishing or as part of rework processes such as those commonly conducted by airline/aerospace facilities. This paper discusses stripping methods and operational considerations in their use.
As Boeing and Airbus demand more finishing capacity, the challenges faced by owners of finishing businesses are pressing, as both customers and regulatory agencies amp up demands for management attention and resources.
