Abstract : This report is divided into parts. Part 1 consists of the front matter, text, and Appendixes A through F, pages 1-204. Part 2 consists of Appendixes G through K, pages 205-361. The objective of the work described in this report was to develop and demonstrate an improved means to replace cyanide containing metal stripping solution in the plating shops at the Air Logistics Centers. During the program, 35 commercial strippers, 3 Air Force process solutions, and a generic nickel stripper were tested. First, these strippers were evaluated on a laboratory scale. If a stripper proved worthwhile in the laboratory, it then was scaled up in a field test. The next step was to implement the most worthwhile products into the plating shop at Kelly AFB. Two strippers, B-9 Nickel Stripper and Rostrip 999-sp Electrolytic Silver stripper, have been successful and implemented into the plating shop at Kelly. These strippers will effectively replace the cyanide stripping processes formerly used by the Air Force. jg p.3
