Abstract:

The major contributing factor to paint failure is excessive buildup of multiple coats of paint applied over a period of years. Although old paint can be removed adequately before repainting, the classical removal processes are costly and impractical. This study examines equipment which, according to the claims of the manufacturers, removes paint easily and inexpensively from wooden surfaces. In addition, tests were conducted to determine the feasibility of developing equipment to remove paint through microwave heating.
