Removing the Oil From a US10B Hardware Finish




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?

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

1. acetone [on eBay or Amazon affil link]
2. Paint Thinner(mineral spirits [on eBay or Amazon affil links] )

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.
