I've been powder coating for years and have used quite a few and one works very well for me. You can pick this up at Advance Auto Parts stores. DO NOT get the aerosol...it isn't nearly as effective as the brush on stuff. They also have a regular Tal Strip too and it's in a white gallon jug as well.

Eastwood (and probably others) sell a liquid powder coating stripper. It is expensive, but works faster and better than any other product that I have used. If you do a lot of powder coating it is worth the cost, as it is reusable. Cost is about $23 a quart. http://www.eastwood.com/ew-powdercoa...ver-quart.html

I used that as well and didn't get that good of a result...left it on the piece for about an hour...then tried heating the part up the second time and still barely stripped it...maybe I gotta bad batch but first impression for me was bad

The cool thing about this stuff is that if you are working with small parts you can put the piece in a plastic jar, submerse the part in the stripper, let it set. When you remove the part, its pretty clean, just needing minor clean up. You can pour the stripper back into the bottle and reuse it again and again. I bought a quart of the stuff, have used it about 10 times, and still have most of the quart left.
