    Default Paint Stripper for Durcacoat removal?

    I had some parts parked and then coated with duracoat. Well the duracoat was put on too thick and I can't get the parts back together. Any recommendations for a paint stripper that will remove the duracoat and not damage the parkerizing?

    You might call Lauer and ask them, but I kinda think its like gunkote in that once its baked you're screwed. Mek is nasty stuff and it won't do squat to gunkote. You might try taking some #0000 steel wool and lightly buffing the parts until they fit.

    Just thinking "out loud" but perhaps a fine file or jeweler's file(s) could be used to knock down the finish a bit?

    Sand blasting is the correct stripper for durcoat. Not sure if there are solvents that will strip it.

    I did the EXACT same thing. Tried several strippers, no luck. Ended up using a Dremel w/sanding drum. Good Luck.
