Hints

Aqua-Strip heavy duty marine paint and varnish remover.  If Aqua-Strip biodegradable paint remover is applied too thinly, left on too long, or due to excessive heat conditions, the applied area is difficult to scrape, try the following:

bullet

bullet

Reapply Aqua Strip heavy duty marine paint and varnish remover over itself, wait 15 to 30 minutes and remove.

bullet

If neither choice above works, scrape off product and reapply.

Test Patch

Since it is often hard to know the type or the amount of paint on a surface, a small test area should be stripped to determine the proper application and dwell time needed for paint removal.


 
Application and Removal
 
 

Aqua Strip heavy duty marine paint and varnish remover is applied to the surface at a total of approximately 1/32' thick (30 mils) with a brush, roller, putty knife or sprayer. Can be sprayed effectively using an airless sprayer DRILL MIX BEFORE SPRAYING - REMOVE FILTERS FROM SPRAYER & GUN (Use at least a 1 GPM piston sprayer, .019 - .021 spray tip).  A wet mil gauge should be used to measure thickness.  Use a wide putty knife to lift the paint off broad surfaces or a stiff bristle brush for detailed areas. Use a stiff bristle brush or stripping pad with Ready Strip Wash paint remover clean-up to remove any residue.  For best results apply at temps between 60° F and 80° F. Product activity is reduced below a temp. of 60° F and may require additional dwell time. If product freezes let thaw and stir vigorously until product is consistent. Coverage varies between 50 and 75 sq ft. per gal. No Neutralization required. Clean-up with water. Any residue should be removed in a short period of time. Misting the applied area with Ready Strip Wash paint remover clean-up prior to removal makes lifting of the paint easier. Misting also reactivates the product if it feels dry.

 

Caution
Safety

When you are removing bottom paint, but do not wish to remove the epoxy bottom coat, care should be taken to remove Aqua Strip heavy duty marine paint and varnish remover and the bottom paint before it penetrates the epoxy barrier coat. A test area will determine the proper dwell and removal time.  Boats whose gel-coats show excessive wear or deterioration may be affected by some paint removal. Do a test to determine acceptability.  Use Lift-n-Strip marine as an alternative.

Safety goggles are recommended for eye protection. Protective gloves such as butyl rubber, neoprene gloves are also recommended. Maintain adequate ventilation especially in confined areas. If spraying or misting is expected use NIOSH approved chemical cartridge (organic vapor) respiratory equipment (full face respirator recommended). In case of inhalation - remove victim to fresh air and provide oxygen if breathing is difficult. In case of eye contact - flush exposed areas with large quantities of water. In case of skin contact - wash skin with soap and water. Use emollient skin creams. In case of ingestion - do not induce vomiting. Call physician immediately.
