Abstract : The intent of this report is to provide fudamental guidelines for engineers, facility designers, and production supervisors concerned with the removal of paint coatings from aerospace hardware. It does not provide a comprehensive accounting of all PMB effects and applications; rather, it is to document PMB experience obtained at various research, test, and maintenance organizations during the last several years. A look at the maturing PMB technology to understand what media and process parameters the depainting community has tried and found acceptable will allow the future PMB facilities to learn and benefit from our past experience. Experience other than military aerostructures are presented to reflect the wide diversity of applications of abrasive blasting for cleaning and coating removal operations.
