Removing the Oil From a US10B Hardware Finish


2001

I have a customer who has existing door hardware with a US10B oil rubbed finish. They are dissatisfied with the uneven way the oil finish wears off where the hardware is touched. Does anyone know a way to safely remove the entire oil finish to expose the bare metal finish beneath?

Oil Rubbed Bronze Hardware

2004

If it is a true OIL RUBBED finish you can use any one of the following strippers to remove the oil.

1. Acetone [linked by editor to product info at Amazon]
2. Paint Thinner(mineral spirits [linked by editor to product info at Amazon])

Do not use any abrasive, this will damage the chemical color finish. Once the oil is removed you can then spray on a clear acrylic lacquer.
