I need to remove a powder coat paint job from a piece of aluminum tubing without heating it or dipping it in chemicals. Will bead blasting or sand blasting work without damaging the aluminum or wearing it down? Anyone know of a place in Orange Co that can do it for me at a reasonable price? Its not a truck part but I figured this is a good place to ask.

My buddy sandblasted his aftermarket Trinity Banshee pipes and I think they are aluminum but maybe not. Hope that helps.

Normal paint stripper will soften or even remove powder coating. The good stuff will also take bondo off......

If it has to look good I would say get it done chemically so it does not ruin the finish. I have a number of a place we use at work...I will get it for you tomorrow when I work.

Jasco piant and epoxy remover. We use this at work on small jobs. It can be bought at home depot. If you have sensative skin, wear gloves.
