Looking for a way to deplate brass objects.
Please advise of any process available that I can do at home.terry [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]
What metal is on the brass that you want to de-plate? May I assume that it's nickel-chrome?
There is the possibility of removing the chrome electrolytically in an alkaline solution--but this leaves you with hexavalent chromium, a carcinogen, in the solution. Then you would need to remove the nickel, with a cyanide-based stripper or a proprietary solution.
You might decide that these kinds of operation should not be done at home.
