I have never used B17 but from what I understand, if you are looking at strippers with "characteristics" similar to B17, then your only option is B17! All I know of available "off the shelf" is the Aircraft stripper.

There's a place in Dallas called Diamond Powder coating that sells it,... they are the local distributor for the stuff.... but they tack on a huge mark up to re-sell..... So I partner up with someone and make a purchase for 30 gallonsd to split, you can buy in six 5 gallon pails and it's easy to share that way,... or if you have a way to transport and share a 30 gallon container of it, you can get it a little cheaper still.

I just went in halves with Jacob (another local, known as Captain Scrappy - Ideal Coatings) for another 130 to split, or I'd make a split with you also.... six 5 gallon pails comes to 405 bucks shipped to your place of business.(or in your case, maybe your home)

I highly receommend finding a partenr to share with,.... there's a guy in Tyler and, I think, another in Longview if that's not too far to travel.... as well as a bunch of us in Dallas and Arlington, and even in Ft Worth.... Post a "split some B17 with me" thread,.... here and on the PBTP forums.... Surely someone could use the other half....

By the way,... It's looking like either friday night or Saturday for the meting time for me and you. If Saturday, I'll come all the way out to BFE and see your set-up too....

Just talked to Benny at Benco (b-17) and inquired about disposal of his product. He told me that the easiest way was to remove the solids occasionally from the tank and when you had collected a 55 gal drum you would have to dispose of it as a hazardous waste which would cost about 300 per barrel. (WOW) He also said that the material inside the drum would need to be dry. As far as the liquid was concerned he said to just let it evaporate. This gives new meaning to the cost of B-17.

Any ideas on what the disposal is on the Rapid Strip? Wondering if that would be any better (or is it rebranded B17)....

Zinsser makes Strip Fast /Power Stripper. You can get it at home improvement stores. It removes paint and powder quickly. But as with B-17 it has Methylene Chloride so it can burn the skin.

It also eats nitrile gloves. Trust me on this one! :lol:
