Abstract : A number of commercially available solvents, various combinations of solvent mixtures, some synthesized organic compounds and different kinds of surfactants were screened for incorporation into new biocompatible paint strippers and aircraft cleaners. In order to facilitate these studies, methods were developed to rate the various ingredients of paint strippers. A tentative formula for a moderately efficient biocompatible paint stripper was developed. (Author)
