The object is the development of a paint remover suitable for use on any type of organic coating over any metal. This report covers Phase 1 of this project, to formulate a paint remover that would loosen all paints and related films from mild steels and aluminum. The second object of Phase 1 required that the formulated paint remover be quick acting, highly efficient, and that it penetrate multilayer coatings and small crevices or fissures that are filled with paint. All the objectives of Phase 1 have been achieved. It is recommended that test methods be devised to insure procurement of this paint remover and that a procurement specification be written. It is also recommended that modifications be attempted for the purpose of extending this paint remover for use on magnesium.
