Please select from menu when ordering

Metal X strippers will strip nickel at the rate of 2 thou per hour, and will strip 2.5-6 ounces of nickel per gallon of stripper solution.  Electroless nickel will strip at the same rate, providing the phosphorous content does not exceed 5%. Higher phosphorous electroless nickel will take longer to strip.

It is safe to use the B-9 formulation and its variants in INOX/ Stainless Steel and Teflon PTFE at temperature of 70 degrees Celsius? The following plastics (PP, PVC, HDPE, LDPE, PS) are also safe in the B-9 formulations.  One should note that LDPE, HDPE and PVC will all soften at temps. above about 60C although they will not be attacked.  Please note that we have no experience with PS(polystyrene) although we do not expect any attack or softening up to boiling water temps. 

2.5 lbs of Metal X stripper makes 3.8 litres of stripping solution. 

Use plastic, unlined steel or stainless steel tanks

Agitation is required during stripping

Stripping tank must operate between 49°C-65°C. To prolong bath life, heating should be discontinued immediately after stripping is complete.

Stainless steel or titanium heaters must be used. No quartz or ceramic heaters.


Please note that our shipping prices are a higher than it would cost to send a normal parcel via the post, the reason for this is because any product that contains chemicals must be sent and packed as per the "hazardous goods" regulations, and be transported by a carrier that is licensed to be able to transport. we are unable to send by regular post as it is now a criminal offence to send undeclared hazardous goods.

    Striping Nickel

    Posted by Denis Dunstan on 15th Jun 2015

    Works well but does need constant temperature. Absolutely no damage to pot metal substrate, but slow going.
