Langlow Strip Away LV is designed for the complete removal of accumulated layers of paint in one application. The systems comprise a ready mixed paste 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. Langlow Strip Away LV and its residue are water soluble.
The Langlow Strip Away LV system is particularly suited to surfaces involving carvings or mouldings such as ornate plaster ceilings or exterior stonework, carved or turned woodwork, or intricate iron work where a reverse mould of the stripped surface should be seen on the laminated cover. The Langlow StripAway LV system is the only method of removing multi-layers of paint from such surfaces without damaging the profiles.
Langlow Strip Away LV does not contain methylene chloride, NMP or caustic, instead it uses a mixture of Di-Basic esters and Benzyl Alcohol as it's active ingredients. Di-Basic ester has been around for years as a waste byproduct from the production of Nylon, without any problems. Benzyl Alcohol needs to be used with more caution, and is considered hazzardous, but it is used in many consumer products, and generally perceived to be effective and much safer than it's alternatives DCM, NMP, NEP etc.
There is no need to neutralise, although a final swab of all surfaces with methylated spirits is recommended. Langlow Strip Away LV has a very low rate of evaporation and a high level of biodegradability, because of these safety factors you have to give them a little more time to work than with more aggressive chemical removers. Stays effective and active longer.
