NEW RECIPE FOR STRIPPING PAINT

Blanket environmental laws and the differing requirements of military and civil aircraft have combined to make reducing the impact of aircraft painting a complex task.

Before an aircraft can be repainted, the old paint must be removed. This article looks at new types of chemical strippers.
