I have a cameron putter that I want to change up. I have had the bos polymer for 8 years or more now and I want to strip it.  Any recommendations on chemicals?

I had a polymer finish on my black lab. I blasted it with kids play sand and it came right off. Had to blast again with glass beads to get final finish.

Bushwood is correct.  Most quality polymer finishes are extremely chemical resistant and it will take a form of media blasting to get them cleaned off.
I heard of a putter sitting in acetone overnight and having no damage to the polymer finish, at all.  Once they are baked on, they can be very durable.

I was hoping it would be easier but I do have a blasting cabinet so no problem. Thanks for chiming in Lamont,  always good to hear from an expert.  I called them yesterday and the girl on the phone had no Idea.

Try citrus strip gel, have used it a couple time to remove the white ghosted faze finishes a few were doing for a while.

I purchased an aircraft stripper that is supposed to work well on powder coatings.  I will try it this weekend and report back.

Isn't polymer just another name for powder coating?  I have used citrus to strip powder coatings.  And then blasted it to get it out of the hard to reach areas.

some form of a powder coating.   citrus strip worked ok but the aircraft paint remover was better.  It is a much harsher chemical as some paint with the chemical splattered on my arm and I could feel it instantly burn a little. Ultimately it was a combo of chemicals and my blasting cabinet that cleaned it up.
