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......

I used swerve around my halucinations, now I drive right thru them.

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.
