The article reports on the development of laser paint stripping application as an alternative paint removal techniques. It mentions some paint removal solutions including the media blasting and chemical removal, however, they remain toxic and hazardous. In this regard, laser paint stripping has been developed which is more powerful, affordable, and robust. It also summarizes the benefits and advantage of laser paint stripping.
