The solvent-based stripper is typically applied to the coated area using a brush, spray, or dip. The stripper is left on the surface for a specified period of time, which varies depending on the type and thickness of the coating. During this time, the solvent dissolves the coating, causing it to swell and become softer.
Once the has been sufficiently softened, it can be removed from the surface of the electronic component. The removal method will depend on the type of coating and the specific requirements of the application. Some coatings may be wiped or brushed off, while others may require a more aggressive removal method, such as scraping or sanding.
