(54)METHODS OF REMOVING A CERAMIC COATING FROM A SUBSTRATE


(57) A method (10) for removing a ceramic coating (130) from a substrate is presented. The method includes contacting the ceramic coating (130) with a composition (200) including a fluoride source and nitric acid. A method (10) of forming a component (100) having a variation in saturation magnetization is presented. The method includes masking (11) selected portions of a surface (121, 122) of a metallic component (120) using a ceramic coating (130) to form a masked metallic component (110); selectively diffusing (12) nitrogen into the metallic component (120) by exposing the masked metallic component (110) to a nitrogen-rich atmosphere; and removing (14) the ceramic coating (130) from the surface (121, 122) of the metallic component (120) by contacting the ceramic coating (130) with a composition (200) including the fluoride source and nitric acid.
