I am seeking information regarding a method to strip electroplated nickel plated from a Watts-type bath from carbon steel. The parts could possibly have a copper strike under the nickel, we aren't sure. I am looking for a method that would be the optimum from an economical, environmental and safety perspective.

Convenient, easy-to-mix and use liquid completely removes both electrolytic and electroless nickel from steel, copper and copper alloys without heating or agitation. Safe and simple to use; usual stripping time is 30 minutes to 4 hours. Re-bottle and use again and again.

I'm trying to strip nickel from a couple of improperly plated aluminum parts. I've been able to carefully peel off some but not all of the nickel. Is there a chemical or electrochemical process for removing the nickel plating?
Just like my popular copper plating instructable, the aim of this is to do high quality, low cost, and safe electroplating. We will also be making our own electrolyte from scratch instead of buying chemicals online. If you've looked at my copper plating tutorial, note that the process here is different. The nickel will not dissolve very well if at all in the vinegar without special help and adding hydrogen peroxide will destroy your electrolyte.
The present disclosure relates generally to the field of electroplating and electroless plating. In the electrochemical plating field, it is often desirable to strip plating from plated metals. In addition, many known stripping agents are hazardous.
