Abstract : This report presents the results of an extensive investigation of possible alternative solvents and technologies that may be safely applied to some Air Force paint-stripping operations. The objective of the Alternative Solvents/Technologies Program is to minimize hazardous waste by eliminating toxic chemicals in the maintenance and repair processes. Three phases of study are defined: Phase I, identify alternate solvents/strippers and screen them; Phase II, field test solvent/ strippers; and Phase III, implement alternate solvents and technologies as approved. A list of potential alternate solvents and paint systems were identified and carried into Phase II. Both immersion and spray/brush-on application methods were studied.
