Originally developed for military and aerospace use, this stripper has no caustic chemicals (such as commonly used methylene chloride, phenol, formic acid, hydrogen peroxide or ammonia), yet remains highly effective on varnishes and paints (epoxy, alkyd, oil, urethane, ethanol and latex based).
It penetrates and breaks the bond between the coating and the substrate — usually within 30 minutes, depending on materials and temperature. With this adhesion broken, the coating lifts off the substrate, allowing clean removal with little scraping effort (use steel wool or an abrasive pad to help remove residue from detailed areas). Surfaces with more than four coats of paint may require a second application.
The remover has a honey-like consistency that clings well to flat and vertical surfaces, evaporates slowly (surfaces stay moist for up to 3 days), and will not stain or corrode metal, aluminum, concrete, PVC, wood, glass, brick or fiberglass. It has a pungent odor and is best used in well-ventilated areas. Wear neoprene or nitrile gloves for skin protection, as well as splash goggles. Clean-up can be done with water.
