Strip Away

The Strip Away Paint Removal System is designed for the complete removal of accumulated layers of paint in one application. The system comprises a ready mixed water-based thixotropic paste incorporating highly alkaline caustic soda that is spread or sprayed over a painted surface. A special laminated polyethylene and fibrous tissue cover is laid over the paste and left until all the paint is emulsified. The emulsified paint is then absorbed back into the paste as it dries on the cover. The cover is then removed complete with paint and paste and the stripped surface washed down. Strip Away and its residue are water soluble.

Strip Away uses Sodium Hydroxide as it's active ingredient. An corrosive alkaline  product which has been in use for many years, commonly known as 'caustic' in the industrial cleaning sector, and often used in Oven Cleaners. Although in Strip Away, it is used in a much higher dilution ratio. It's a much safer and effective system to use than NMP, NEP or Methylene Chloride (DCM) - which is now banned for non-professional use in the EU.

Strip Away capable of liquidizing up to 30 coats of paint in one application. The StripAway system is particularly suited to surfaces involving carvings or mouldings such as ceiling roses, cornice, ornate plasterwork, exterior stonework, carved or turned woodwork, and intricate iron work. It's the only tried and tested method of removing multi-layers of paint from such surfaces without damaging the profiles.
