Rack stripper formula




Does anybody know of a good, non-proprietary formula for stripping acid copper,tin/lead plating racks? I would like something nitric acid based but stabilized against NOx release.

Thanks,

What substrate are your racks made of?

Various things have been suggested to minimize NOX NH4 e.g., NH4NO3, urea nitrate, sulfamic acid [on eBay or Amazon] as additives to 50-70% nitric Be careful try in small trial tank first Also try floating a 1 inch layer of thin paraffin oil. This is surprisingly effective.
