Hi Christian
Electrolytic method:
20% sodium carbonate
5% tartaric acid
75% water
temperature 70-80 degree C
Stainless steel cathode, coated part anode
current density 4-8 amps/sq in @ 6 volts DC
The nickel strip salt solutions I was referring to are commercially available chemicals primarily designed for removing electroplate and electroless nickel coatings from steel. I have come across cyanide based solutions containing Enstrip A plus Enstrip T-L and Enstrip S plus sodium cyanide. Plating chemical supply companies like
may be worth looking at. These are effective with nickel based coatings, but believe chromium interferes, so may not work well with Diamalloy 2001. Do a search for say "stripping" on the search message board search facility and you should find a few other message threads on this general subject.
Regards Gordon
