EFFECTS OF TEXO #502AF AND PENNSALT CLEANER #44 PAINT STRIPPERS ON COMMONLY USED AIRCRAFT MATERIALS
MCDONNELL AIRCRAFT CORP ST LOUIS MO
Epoxy paint used on F4H detail parts is presently being stripped by hand. Because of in creased epoxy paint requirements, tank stripping operations are urgently needed to eliminate costly hand stripping. Therefore, it is neces sary to determine if the proposed tank type paint strippers have any deleterious effects on materials they will contact. Test panels and tensile strength specimens were immersed in the paint strippers under conditions simulating operating conditions. Panels were checked for weight change, discoloration, and evidence of corrosion. The panels were then placed in the salt spray, in accordance with Method 811.1 of Federal Test Method Standard 151, using a 20 salt solution.
