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 SolventsTechnologies 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 solventsstrippers 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 spraybrush-on application methods were studied.
