GABE, D.R., 2007. Metal strippers: their science and technology. Transactions of the Institute of Metal Finishing, 85, pp. 72-74
Metal strippers in the electroplating industry are often considered to be necessary
evils: they add additional processing and cost to correct earlier processing deficiencies
yet enable expensive component substrates to be re-coated for prime engineering
usage. The stripper solution formulations are generally traditional or proprietary and
either way are open to better understanding and effective enhancement. This article
explains their usage and formulation and indicates how they may be logically
developed for new applications.
