Chemical-metallographic test with nitric acid on the vehicle body and chassis of steel (Article)

The alteration of a vehicle identification characteristics is
carried out with the use of emery and sandpaper to erase
the information in order to subsequently superimpose different
numeric or alphanumeric codes, thus preventing the
verification of its former origin or ownership and hindering
its tracking. Chemical attack has been recognized as the
most sensitive technique to retrieve altered serial numbers,
and this article was aimed at assessing the effectiveness
of nitric acid (HNO3) 3.15 M in revealing them on body and
chassis surfaces with steel, low-carbon and medium carbon
steel alloys respectively. Four tests were performed: (i)
Bodywork: marking, and erasing with grinding machine,
(ii) bodywork: marking with electric pen, and manual deletion;
(iii) chassis: marking, and manual deletion, and (iv)
manual marking, and erasing with grinding machine. In all
tests carried out, erased markings were retrieved in a few
seconds, with definition and contrast.
