Re: Removing paint from castings
Resin or injected plastic : Use caustic soda
in spray spreaded on the model. Check the spray is well WITH caustic soda
the one to clean classic kitchen stove . Put the model covered with this abundant bubble bath in a plastic bag and close it with a rubber brace one night . The day after clean the caustic soda under valve of cold water cleaning slighty with an old brush . Paints will leave with water like "ink in a glass of water" and synthetic mater of the model will come back clean like new never painted before !
Carefull, toxic for respiration . Work outside and use gloves .
I know it's been discussed before... but I can't find it.
What is the best cleaner for removing paint from castings? I seem to recall that Simple Green is highly thought of. I also recall that brake fluid is not as well thought of any more, due to chemical changes to suit modern brakes. Lacquer thinner was another choice, but requires excellent ventilation -- and it dissolves plastic. I also recall a Polly S product that worked well, but they are no longer in business... :( Are there others I'm missing that I should be considering? A quick note on what you prefer (and why) would be greatly appreciated!
