    Default Clear anodizing removal

    Does anyone know how to remove clear anodizing that has experience doing it. The only way I can get it off is sanding. Looking for a chemical way to remove or something easier than sanding.

    Dep concentrate degreaser. Home Depot
    Depending on the temp. should take 10 to 20 minutes.
    Do NOT get on your skin or clothes.

    If you plan to get it anodized again,, the anodizing ship should be able to strip it for you, little to no charge.

    Right, didn't know where the OP was located, but even when I was a kid Jenco was the place!

    I don't know his location either, but I have tried the Ez off, several coats and then sanding and its a pain. Hell I have gone to Jenco since I was a kid. Maybe the Zep degreaser would be worth tying, little parts and fitting would be nice to do at the shop

    Test that Dep purple cleaner on a junk part first to make sure that the results you get are the results you expect.

    Good luck,

    Joe

    what dose that mean? poor quality ? I expect stripped to be stripped, ready to belt and polish. I dont want to buy the crap if it dosent work. Hell I work in Colton, how about I swing by and you show me some parts you have done ?

    Thanks for the replies. I am in Ohio. I would consider shipping them to someone if it was a reputable company. The parts I have are swim steps.

    Get ahold of your closest friend that is in the heat and air business and have him bring you some A-coil cleaner. It's an acid I believe and all I have seen is kinda pink in color. It'll strip it in minutes with zero labor and will be ready to polish or whatever as soon as you are ready with the rag and polish.
