Default Aircraft Paint Remover Remnants

This can has been on a shelf in my cabinet for more than 25 years. The once steel can let go as soon as I touched it.

I had no idea this had happened. I open this cabinet regularly and never noticed any unusual smell. The surface it was on was also not affected.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

I can’t say. Had trouble reading the labeling, even with my readers on.

I suspect the current product has been influenced by governing regulations.

Don't know anything about Aircraft paint remover. We, used an Aircraft De-greaser years ago for cleaning dumpsters. It was Badass for stripping grease from containers. But, less than human friendly back in the day we didn't wear gloves power washing containers. It made you feel like your hands were swelling sort of like working with Creosote/asphalt. Probably no good for Chromosomes.

A good number of years ago, some POS was smearing Aircraft Stripper on vehicles parked on the street, can't remember if they ever got caught either.
