A. If the phosphate has been sealed with oil you will need to degrease first. Cold inhibited HCl will totally remove phosphate without damaging the steel surface. R

A. Miros: Take a look in finishing.com's Archives on the home page for threads/topics #3563 and #4175. You will find more discussions on stripping phosphate coatings and verification method. Good luck.
