    Anyone know of a chemical that will remove black ion plating?

    Just what the title says.. Are there any solvents that can be used to strip off black IP, to get down to the base metal?

    I really doubt there's a chemical (solvent) that could "dissolve" the ion plating. I figure there may be some acid that would corrode the plating off, but there would be a possibility of the acid also attacking the base metal.
    Cheers!

    I guess that you could just use a buffing machine (those used in watchmaking) to remove the IP to have a mirror finish metal after the process.

    Not sure about IP but I've read how people remove the gold plating from metal objects but the process is a bit tedious, it involves the usage of an acidic solution with a heating process with a torch.
