Removing beverage can UV-coating??? Hello everyone, I would like to know how can I remove UV-coating of beverage can? I'm a plastic modeler and I need the aluminum sheet to make some parts for my models. Sanding method is not an option for me because it damages aluminum and then I need to polish it which involves great deal of effort not to ruin the sheet for further usage. So that asks for some kind of solvent to remove the coating. I read somewhere that chloroform could be the solution for me and I wonder if that is true. Also, could it be that formic acid may remove it?
