Occasionally, platinum anodes are inadvertently painted, rendering them inoperative. Paint removal by abrasive blasting may erode the soft platinum. Electrolytic methods for stripping the Navy underwater vinyl paint system were found ineffective at applied potentials up to 20 volts and anode current densities up to about 3000 amperes per square foot. Solvents which removed vinyl paint quickly were acetone, toluene, methylene chloride, MEK, MIBK, and trichloroethylene. Author
