    Sand or bead blasting will probably be your best choice but you may end up with a slight orangepeel texture on the Ti. Powdercoat is pretty tough stuff.

    I dont know if it would work on power coating but I know Oven Cleaner removed anadiozed coating before. Just a thought. What about Paint stripper?:confused
    :confused:

    Thanks guys, I have heard paint stripper will not work as powder coating is much tougher.

    A gel type paint stripper containing methylene chloride should do the trick. It just takes longer to remove a baked-on or catalyzed finish than an air-dry finish. A hot lye solution mixed with methylene chloride is used to strip baked paint in a commercial setting.
