What kind of reaction occurs between various metals and Methylene chloride (dichloromethane)?

I am currently testing ways to remove epoxies and silicons, (decapsulating), from aluminum grit/shot (more info about Aluminum Shot here:Aluminum Shot). If I have a cured epoxy binding the aluminum grit and the Methylene-Chloride eats away/dissolves the epoxy, will there be a reaction between it and the remaining aluminum shot. Shot also comes in other materials: iron, steel, and nickel, for example. Will the Methylene chloride react adversely with those either?
