How to Apply
Because these products are bio-solvent blends they strip differently from industry standard strippers and paver sealer removers like methylene chloride or NMP. Bio-strippers need time to work as the stripping mechanism is different from petroleum-based solvents. Bio-solvents penetrate paints, paver sealers and coatings and work by breaking the bond between the coating and the substrate where petroleum-based solvents work by dissolving coatings. As a result, it is important to give the bio-stripper time to work.
For 2 part urethane/epoxies and/or thicker coatings, we recommend 2 Mils stripping to substrate followed by covering the area with plastic cover for 12 hours and then pressure washing the stripper from the surface. We believe in letting the chemicals do the work.
Flat or Vertical Surfaces
Apply 1 – 2 mils of stripper to the substrate. Allow sufficient time to lift paint. Remove with a plastic paint scraper. Typically a dwell time of 45 to 60 minutes is sufficient for a waterborne 2 part urethane’s and other coatings.
Dwell times needed to remove coatings are dependent on the coating thickness, type, and age as well as the porosity of the surface. A second stripper application may be necessary.
The data below outlines typical performance for removing various types of coatings. Coating time will vary depending on coating thickness and surface temperature.
|Coating Type||Strip Time|
|Acrylic coating (12mils)||20 - 30 minutes|
|Acrylic (12 mils) over elastomeric (8 mils)||3 hours|
|Moisture-cured epoxy||10 - 20 minutes|
|2 Part waterborne epoxy||45-60 minutes|
|Oil & water stains, transparent or pigmented||20 - 30 minutes|
|Oil based enamel||20 - 30 minutes|
|Polyurethane||45 - 60 minutes|
