How to strip PVD



June 25, 2012

Q. This is our first time stripping PVD. We are sandblasting it and it's taking us a long time to do this. Is there a faster/different way to strip the PVD?

The metal is brass.

A. Hi Mina. PVD means physical vapor deposition, and it is an application method rather than a coating material. Chemical dissolution is usually possible and is often better than sandblasting, but you would need to know what material you are trying to strip from the brass. If you can find out what x is, you can search the site for "strip x". Good luck.
